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

Bird information in the good old days!

Cley village

Cley-next-the-sea, Norfolk once the epicentre for bird information!

Way back when I first got really into birds as a teenager in the 1970's it was hard to come by up to date news on bird sightings, hard to believe now given the almost instant communication of the digital worid. My first memory of actively seeking "bird news" was to read the RSPB members magazine, still called Birds in those days, no one would have dreamed that it would be re-branded Natures Home, but that's another blog! In those far off days the magazine contained a section covering news from the reserves which often listed unusual birds encountered on the RSPB's sites. This was always the first section of the publication I turned to and devoured the words telling of rare and scarce birds seen. Of course this "news" was months old by the time the magazine dropped through the letter box yet it was still a thrill to read of a Pectoral Sandpiper seen at Minsmere in Suffolk!

I slowly began to meet other local birders here in North Wales and would occasionally receive a phone call about an unusual bird that had been sighted in the area, but the call was rarer than the birds involved, I was frustrated!

In 1978, still in my teens, I got a job as a National Trust warden at Blakeney Point on the North Norfolk coast, at that time the nearby village of Cley-next-the-sea was known as the mecca of birdwatching, and I was very excited to be heading east!
