    That's my (user) name..

    As I plod through last year's photographs, here are a couple I took in July at Filey Bird Garden to post here as I was admiring some "zoo Amazons". The bench was a welcome albeit temporary addition whilst work on the doubling of the aviary took place (it was completed before the end of the...

    Curlew

    Two years ago I worked in tthe museums in Hull over winter and frequently saw a curlew on my pre-work potter around the area of the pier. It was a very photogenic bird unlike the ones I see on the rocks north of Bridlington that disappear when anyone gets within about 100 yards of them. To my...

    Dolphins

    Looking for dolphins must be like waiting for a bus. After 26 years of not seeing a living cetacean (two porpoises and a Pilot Whale off Scarborough during the same week in 1995) I've now seen dolphins from the cliffs at South Landing north of Bridlington on two successive Sundays. Last Sunday...

    A few photographs of psittacines at Filey Bird Garden & Animal Park taken on 16th April this year (I've been twice more since then, but haven't reviewed all of the pictures yet), naturally starting with some of Amazons...

    Myfanwy and Kirby

    It's over four years since Myfanwy and Kirby went to live at Sewerby Zoo, part of the attraction where I work. They settled in wonderfully and have since been joined by two Orange-winged Amazons and a pair of Blue-fronts. They did not get on with each other when I had them at home, but it's very...

    Introducing Oswald

    Back in April I decided that the flat could accommodate a small psittacine, and that a budgie was the obvious and best choice. Off I went to buy a cage, walking instead of cycling as I thought it would be easier to carry one rather than strap it on the carrier on my bike. When I was carrying it...

    Post Anniversary Myfanwy

    Last week Myfanwy didn't disappear down her hole, but flew to the window sill when she saw me in the zoo kitchen. I opened the door and she stepped on to my hand...

    Anniversary

    A few days late posting, but last Sunday was the first anniversary of Myfanwy and Kirby packing their bags and going to Sewerby Zoo so I took a few photos (only one poor one of Myfanwy I'm afraid as she disappeared down her hole straight after I'd taken it). The move has been a great success as...

    Hello Again

    Not a new member of course, but saying hello after an unintentional break - having only just got back in action on the forum, I moved on 19th December and had booked an appointment to connect the telephone line and broadband for 4th January. It eventually got done in March at the fourth attempt...
