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

Here is a picture of the Twitchers enjoying the Eastern Crowned Warbler at South Shields. Picture by John Roberts who was lucky enough to see this mega bird yesterday. Ruth's talk, on Birds, Boots and Butties, went went well at the Conwy Feast if to a rather select audience. It was not an easy venue for a talk with a lot of noise in the back ground and a light filled marque. Ruth did very well, speaking loudly and clearly, keeping the projector close to the screen so the photos were bright. Having had the fore thought to put black back grounds to the pictures helping greatly with the bright lit tent. Unfortunately the talk before ours was not so good, the poor lady had a very soft voice, stood well back from the audience and had no pictures to help with the story. It got worse as the tannoy kept announcing various other events over the top of her. Then it got even worse, three people walked into the tent and straight up to the speaker, in mid-flow, and asked to buy a book. The lady was so shocked that she sold a book mid-talk while the audience just sat and watched. Doing a talk without images to help is always tough but in these circumstances just impossible!We are giving another talk at RSPB Conwy on Friday the 11th December at 7pm. The talk will be about our adventures during The Biggest Twitch but we are putting together lots of new images and stories to share with you. Contact the reserve now to reserve your seat, space limited! There will also be the chance to register for your signed copy of the forth coming book “The Biggest Twitch” the print run for the first edition will be limited and demand is already high so if you don’t want to miss out come along and guarantee your signed copy. We hope the book will be published in April 2010.
