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 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

 Another lovely Spring day here in North Wales, if a little cool with a NE breeze. The limestone headland of the Great Orme towers above our house and on mornings like this can't be ignorned! The headland is a great place to search for migrant birds and each visit brings that hope of something a little different.At first it was pretty bird less in the cold of early morning but slowly birds began to move. Lesser Redpolls, or were they Commons?, flew over calling but none landed to be grilled. A few Goldfinch, Greenfinch and Chaffinch also headed over north. A Skylark struck up his wonderful song to lift the spirit. But migrants were few, half a dozen Wheatears were the best. Then a dark thrush flew low across the path and dived behind a gorse bush, perhaps a Ring Ouzel? No just a Blackbird, what was he doing out here, migrant?Then reaching the corner of the stonewall that borders the fields and limestone pavement area, another dark thrush, this one with a harsher chack-chack call, a real Ring Ouzel and a fine male! Luckily this mountain thrush landed on the wall and showed off in the sun and was joined by second before flying a short distance to another wall. Further out on the pavement a third male Ring Ouzel hopped around a patch of low gorse, brilliant.Sadly time had slipped by quickly and it was back down the hill to do some work but what a great start to the day!This Saturday at Pensychnant, just outside Conwy, there will be an optics demonstration 10am to 4pm by Cambrian Photography and Leica Sports Optics.  Do come along (free entry for all, no booking needed) and join us for tea/coffee and cake/biscuits to talk all things optics, cameras and birding in an informal setting.  There’s an excellent chance of adding Pied Flycatcher and Common Redstart for your year-list amongst many other bird species at this beautiful location.
