Re: MikeOxon

... and the one you took the photo with, I assume :) No no no. I set it up on 10 seconds self-timer and then put it in the pile with the others. Only just had time to do that before the shutter went off :( :?: Had a silly issue earlier in the day (this should really be in my diary but here goes). W...

Re: MikeOxon

You mentioned that you have yet another camera

Here's (some of) my equipment.

Are you going to show us yours Mike? :twisted:
Two or three more cameras that I couldn't find.

Re: MikeOxon

That moon photo is fantastically sharp but I wonder if it is a little over-processed? supermoon-crop.jpg The white dots/crater edges or whatever are far more prominent (artefacts?) than I have see in other pictures of a full moon. That's just a crop to illustrate. Next challenge is to use the same t...

Re: Neil Hulme

Even though I can't appreciate the results myself, it's lovely to read about how conservation (for butterflies) should be carried out. Thanks Neil. You deserved that last "gong" for all you efforts and maybe will get a few more in the future. Q. Do you have to wear it round your neck when ...

Re: Purple Emperor Norfolk

It is reassuring to read that the Great Man (MO) agrees with my thoughts about my native county. Minor typo though:
even as far east as Fakenham
I think that should have read even as far west as Fakenham.

Re: Highways England A27 Arundel Bypass Consultation

Neil:
That means it should have paid for itself (in terms of these costs) in 250 years time.
Rather better argued than Devil's Advocate.
A saving of £250 million could be put to much more productive use - such as enhanced promotion of Political Correctness :evil:

Re: Purple Emperor Norfolk

No, it wasn't a misidentification as there are photos that clearly are PE. Oddly though, the pictures were of a female: females don't usually go to ground (so I understand).

Purple Emperor Norfolk

The Norfolk Branch newsletter has a report of three sightings in the Sheringham area. I had written a while ago that one hypothesis might be that PE has been present in very low numbers all along, but below the visibility threshold. More favourable summers have allowed the Purple Emperor to do well ...

Re: Highways England A27 Arundel Bypass Consultation

Devil’s Advocate Let us say that a minimum of 300 vehicles per hour pass through Arundel (a huge underestimate I am sure). Over an eight hour day, that is 2,400. Five days per [working week] totals 12,000 vehicles. Assume a delay of 12 minutes - 0.2 hours each time (not an underestimate in my, albe...

Re: Amusing old PE photo

Thanks Neil.

I’ll aim to get my annual “Sussex Fix” (apart of course from the BC Sussex Branch newsletters – the best of the many branches to which I belong) and beginning of May and probably a second "Fix" end Jun/early July depending on the progress of the season.

Re: Amusing old PE photo

Well, that's cleared up that one. I had no idea who was in the photo. I might well visit Fermyn and/or Knepp next summer. I know of course about the public access to Fermyn and the walking that is involved (I'm rather slow these days!) But I'm unfamiliar with Knepp. What are the access arrangements ...

David M: The flowers on mine have all gone. How do you keep yours in such wide bloom so late in the season? When the "pseudo seed pods" have extended well up the stalk, the end being still in flower, I cut off at the base of that stem. Then run my hand along the "pods" to remove...
