Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them

A visit to Foryd Bay west of Caernarfon today - as always plenty of birds at this large, shallow estuary.  On arrival at the mouth of the bay a Great Northern Diver was wrestling with a large crab.  The diver eventually won out and swallowed the crab minus its claws. A lengthy period of preening and wing flapping followed, perhaps the crab was giving it indigestion? It was lovely to watch this scarce bird on a flat, calm sea in good light.  On the mudflats, 100s of Wigeon and Pintail loafed about, none were in the mood to feed, perhaps enjoying the weak warmth from the winter sun. Waders here included some 60 Bar-tailed Godwits, and a flighty Greenshank who's ringing tu-tu calls floated through the still air. Suddenly the ducks and waders took flight as a female Peregrine tore across the sky but found nothing to lock onto and drifted away high to the south.  But one species was missing: where were the usual Brent Geese? Scanning across the Menai Straits, a long line of dark birds was flying fast and direct towards the bay.  The Brents were coming!  70 of these small dainty geese glided into land on the still waters of the channel and began to wash and preen, a lovely sight. Back home, there was just time to fine-tune our presentation for tonight's talk at Conwy RSPB.  With a line-up of 279 slides, this is our biggest and (hopefully) best talk yet, with all new pictures and stories to tell - providing the computer doesn't explode with the effort!  The talk starts at 7.30pm and there are still a few tickets left, so if you fancy an entertaining evening, do come and join us!
