  1. Hi Martin,

    Just found your blog and thoroughly enjoyed it. Can’t imagine how I missed it before! Anyhow, it’s great with a totally refreshing approach and (of course) some cutting edge ideas on identification. I’ve already added it my list of favorites.

    Hope you and the family are doing well. Keep up the great work.

    Best Wishes,

    (still in Amherst, Massachusetts).

      Hi James

      Great to hear from you. I think you have the better blog name! One I toyed with at start.

      I look forward to following what you are up to – and please you can teach me how to do digi binning – I just can’t do it!

      Cheers Martin

    Super site, Martin, so much information posted in such a short time by so few (apologies to WinstonC) – reading it makes me feel like a walk around with my eyes shut! – ID stuff like yours at least makes you look with a more discerning eye at things!

    Keep up the good work –

    Laurie –

    Hi Martin, Love this site ! Was the Eagle owl found on the Yorks side of the bridge ? Have you had it analysed yet ? would love to know the origin of this bird .



    • Martin Garner says:

      Hi Trevor

      the Owl is fully in the hands of Andy Gibson, Yorkshire wildlife Trust warden and I imagine it may be some time before there is any news – these things can take a while – thanks very much for the interest

      cheers Martin

    Martin, great blog and very informative! So informative there are bits I wouldn’t mind keeping in a folder for future ref. But printing is difficult as half the page gets chopped off! Don’t know if anyone else has mentioned this or if you are particularly PC-lit (I’m not!) but have you considered a ‘printable view’ button that squishes it all into one page width? Maybe another reader (more techy than me) can advise on this…?

    • Trev says:


      If you use the google chrome browser you can install an add on that takes a snapshot of the screen and saves it as a PNG file, you can store it in any folder and access it like a photo, a bit more environmentally friendly than printing .
