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

Migration in the back garden

We are very lucky living in Llandudno, North Wales with the headland of the Great Orme just above the house.

The Great Orme is a magnet for migrant birds and at this time of year it is possible to see huge numbers of birds on the move, just minutes from our door!

Early mornings are best to see visible migration, that is birds flying over the headland on their journeys south.
With light winds it was a good morning! Just as the light came up we could hear birds calling as they passed over head. Crossbills in particular were moving with numerous small flocks heading west giving their "chupp, chupp" calls.
Greenfinches, Chaffinches, Siskins, Redpolls, Skylarks, Meadow Pipts were all moving!
Birds were also in the bushes, many Blackbirds were feeding eagerly after a long night flight, careful searching produced more birds

Fieldfare Great Orme
Fieldfares fresh in from Scandinavia dropped into the trees.

Brambling Great Orme
A stunning Brambling landed in the bushes at the back of the cemetry, a real beauty!

October is a wonderful time of year for birds, you never know what will pop up next!

Why not join us for great birds and great fun?

We are giving a talk tonight, Friday 21st October, in Penrhyn Bay at the Church Hall, near the Co-Op store at 7.30pm all welcome do come along!
