Friday at the Flicks - Blue Tits + Goldfinches

A couple of short videos to go with previous reports.

The young Blue Tits:



The visiting Goldfinches:



Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.


FLICKR's newly added headers and footers to photos.

If, like me, you dislike the 'new improved' look of photos that Flickr have introduced with their embedded code then HERE is the place to make your views felt. Dislike is very much an understatement of how I felt when I saw how distracting and ugly this innovation looks.

Here is an example of the new look:

Fortunately it is possible to strip out the offending code but when you post many photos it becomes an annoying chore.

  1. Caught me by surprise this morning. Goldfinches rarely bother with my niger seed. I have had a bag for a year and the other day mixed it with my normal seeds.
    I don't use Flickr. I used to but just got out of the habit.

    1. I don't like it either. Is it possible to make a short macro so one click will remove the HTML code?

    2. Adrian: Probably if I had the knowledge of how to make and use one. Looking at some of the replies on the official forum it looks as though, eventually, there may be a way to disable it. So far the comments appear to be something like 95%+ hating it so hopefully the silly idea will be short lived.

    3. If you still have trouble let me know and I'll get Mark to write one with instructions. I can do them in Photoshop and used to be able to do them in MS Office.

  3. The young blue tits won't be likely to starve - they have the peanut feeder down pat.
