    Nice catch. Like others I can only dream of getting one of these. I need to go looking without children.

    Beginner First Robin

    Many thanks. Post processing is a bit hit and miss for me at the moment. All editing takes place on my iPad because I can't justify a new computer. The more I look at this the more I can make sense of the comments. I just need to spend more time getting them right

    Thanks for that. I've just upped the contrast a bit and it does look better. Not sure why I didn't do that the first time round! Red Robin by -johnsonpauld-

    Burglars and human rights

    Human rights can only be breached by a public authority. Only some of those rights are absolute rights so can also be legally breached. However, sadly that doesn't give us free reign. You can defend your property but don't go too far. You'll only know if you've gone too far when the court...

    Tips for improving home security?

    I'm thinking of bringing back the idea of moats. Failing that nuclear bunkers come up for sale every so often.

    Tips for improving home security?

    You've got it well thought out Some burglars are quite happy to do it daytime too. Too many people leave tools around the garden or put a cheap brass padlock on their sheds. As long as it's enough to get them to move on to your neighbours - that's the main thing.

    Vtech kids action camera V cheap chinese action camera.

    My four year old has one of the vtechs and has for the last couple of years. He knows his way around the menus and loves the little games. Yep. The quality isn't brilliant but it's straightforward.

    Tips for improving home security?

    Decent doors and windows Decent locks on the above. CCTV that's clearly visible with decent images. If the worst case does happen at least you may have footage. How far do you want to go? Gravel driveway - the smaller gravel gives you the nice crunchy sound as people walk on it. Some think...

    Leprosy in Red Squirrels!

    Was at whinfell forest the other week. Went last year and was sick of seeing red squirrels. This year, just one whilst leaving at the end of the week. Apparently they've been struck down by squirrel pox.

    iPad via card reader?

    I use a MobileLite device. Pop the SD into the device and it creates its own wifi signal to transfer to the card. It was cheaper than the official connector and I can use it across apple and android devices

    Nikon D7xxx owners thread

    Ah. Its probably just me. I've probably convinced myself that it's worse than it is and that the new improved version will sort it. Have to say yesterday's trip got a few more keepers than normal. Maybe I've finally hit my first 10000 shots.

    Nikon D7xxx owners thread

    I've had the camera for 18 months. At first I thought it was just me but I don't think my eyes are that off. I can see where I'm focusing. It's just that to me the focus seems to be in a different point. I end up with very few I'm happy with.

    Nikon D7xxx owners thread

    @ian-83 what's up with yours? Not sure if I have the focus issues with mine. Tried all sorts but can't seem to get it better. Dunno whether to send it to Nikon or accept defeat and ask the boss for a 7200

    Heads Up to iPhone and Apple Watch Owners

    Sorry for delay. No the old one I have used. I only want to be disturbed by certain numbers when I'm on nights. Bedtime is one where you get to set reminders for going to bed and waking up to 'pleasant sounds'. To be fair I probably wouldn't use it. I remember to go to bed when I'm tired
