@Phil - I was about to post something similar. The Coal Tit is a very subtle difference and you need a good (sharp) pair of bins to see it. Coal Tits I would see occasionally every few winters. Didn't actually have many Great Tits - there is also a slight size difference.

I think I've only ever seen long-tailed tits a couple of times where I used to live. Pretty sure it was one year (and maybe the next), after living in one location for about 15 years.

The wonders of the English language with that actually perfect 'help us eat' comment!

I'm intrigued by the "help us eat the buxus moth larvea" - are they tasty?


Interesting, never knew the Coal tit and the Great tit are not the same, and to make it more confusing the Dutch Koolmees is not the Coal tit but the Great tit and the Coal tit is called Zwarte mees in Dutch.

And regards their menu, the first year of the buxus moth plague over here there were no birds that ate the larvae and we had to catch them all by hand if you didn't want to spray chemicals (which we didn't). The second year the tits just found out that they liked the larvae and they took care of lots of them. Maybe I should have said "help us by eating the buxus moth larvae", we personally don't eat them

These are of course 'local names' - which is why twitterers always use the Latin/Scientific names (which normal folk simply won't recognize).   Or are they twitchers, both are 'social' networks now! Not even those hobbiest labels work now?

Some super examples are the Magpie, the Kingfisher, and the Robin ... I think those look quite different in the USofA for example? Or somewhere, anyway.

Week 6 - Topic 3 (dig in the archive)

Nickey (April 2007)

KM5D + Tamron 70-300 telemacro

Looking in my archive the 2nd quarter of 2007 was mainly macro and family snaps. Since I'm already doing vintage digital macro I don't want too many macro shots from the archive and I promised my family members not to plaster them over the internet so I finally chose one who didn't care about that . This is Nickey, our loyal and gentle curly coated retriever who lived a great life and finally passed away when she was 15 1/2 years   .

I really like the feeling this gives. Is this an anti-tank canal that actually works? Seems like a tank could just roll right through this.

I'm wondering if tanks are waterproof?
Or if maybe these canals were seeded with underwater land mines (is that even a thing)?

Thanks Eddy, this canal was built in 1938 to try and keep the Germans out and at that time had much steeper banks and was also deeper, probably around 3 meter. And then there were no trees and every few km a fort with uninterupted view and big guns.

However in the end it was an outdated type of defense and never really tested, the airplanes just flew right over and bombed some cities and forced the surrender of the Belgian army that way.

At this moment the canal and ~500 meter on either side is a nature area and the ancient forts are a reserve where many bats hybernate.

Oh my, that's quite the dramatic panoramic. The shot really takes advantage of the lighting and the snow.

Thanks, that's exactly why I took and selected the shot. Without the icy reflection it becomes quite dull I think.
