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

Three bird-packed days in Norfolk

We love this time of year, when you just have to be everywhere at the same time to enjoy all the wonderful birding that's around. We're doing a lot of local guiding around North Wales at the moment, but still found time to squeeze in three brilliant bird-filled days in Norfolk with Jayne, Tel and Charlie.

No visit to Norfolk is complete without calling in at RSPB Titchwell. This confiding Water Rail was just one of the many, many birds we saw there

Sometimes the birding's so good we just can't tear ourselves away even as the sun sets....

Norfolk trainspotters

But we always allow plenty of time for everyone to enjoy themselves, even if it does include trainspotting!

Teatime at Cafe Blah Blahh Hunstanton

Final cuppa and cake with our friends at Cafe Blah Blahh in Hunstanton before saying goodbye to Norfolk!

It was a trip filled with excellent birds and lots of laughs, a comfy hotel with a lovely warm welcome and plenty of good food and cakes! What more could you ask for? Thanks Jayne, Charlie and Tel for making it such fun, we can't wait to go birding with you guys again!

And if you're looking for a birder-friendly B&B to stay, we can highly recommend the Shellbrooke Hotel in Hunstanton on Just tell Jacqui and Mark that The Biggest Twitch sent you and you'll be sure of a warm welcome!
