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

We are talking birds again

Alan giving talk

Time to talk birds again as we hit the road

Last night we gave our first talk of the Autumn/Winter season to the WI at Eglwysbach village south of Conwy. A lovely group with lots of questions following our "The Biggest Twitch" talk. Climate change being an issue that resulted in lively debate focusing on which species of bird we might loose in our life time.

Snow Bunt 2 KB

Could we loose our breeding Snow Buntings in the UK?

Spoonbill 1

But on the plus side Spoonbills are now breeding in the UK.

We have three more talks this week so if you have the chance do come along and say hello. If you have a group that would like an entretaining illustrated talk, we have many subjects to choose from, do get in touch. We tailor make our talks to suite each audience as we did last night, more scenery, wildlife, people and food stories for a WI group. Very glad to report that the ladies really enjoyed the evening.
