1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Me and the good lady decided to get away from it all this last weekend. It was a great weekend and a much needed break :D

    The only birds i got to shoot were with the camera but they all seemed to have a personality ..... here they are

    [​IMG]

    think he was disgusted that i stole his soul with my lens !!



    [​IMG]

    this one kept flying back to us on a thermal .... cheeky so n so after the wifes chips i think :)



    [​IMG]

    this one was such a show off. i snapped him several times on one side of the bush as he was singing then we walked through a gate and he hopped through so i could get a few pictures again !! Beautiful song for us though :up:



    [​IMG]

    This one appeared from no where ... any ideas ?? I know what he was as i was very lucky to get a few snaps ...... made my day :cool:



    [​IMG]

    This was were we went ..... any ideas ? If you have been to North Norfolk then maybe :)

    And finally


    [​IMG]


    This was the actual colour of the sky. No photoshopping ! All i had was a blue filter on my lens which was meant to pull out the blues during the day !! Im still learning about my camera with iso and apertures but i do love to shoot :)

    I'd echo these comments. I can never get the sky colour on my phones camera or my Canon A1200, which admittedly is nothing special but it's got more mega-pixels than my phone.

    It's Cromer...

    Really Like this pic. Save it for next years Countryfile Comp.
    As mentioned this does look like a Kestrel.


    Did you have any crab whilst there?

    Hi again and thanks for the replies

    Im probably better with the camera than the gun ...... the shame of it :eek: and its a canon 650d and thanks for liking the photos. Not sure if they are Countryside quality but i might as well enter a few ....... and i thought Norfolk Dave might of guessed where it was :)

    And yes to those that guessed it was a Kestrel :up:

    [​IMG]

    I thought it had caught some prey as it was in the long grass for about 30 secs. I dare not take my eyes off where it was or else im sure i would of lost it. It took off so fast i struggled to get a good pic :)

    Cheers
