Seven years ago, in April 2009, I began the online digital photography course called T189.

I learnt a lot about my camera during the 12 week course, and met up with several other course members who lived in the same area as I.

Once the course was over some of the group wanted to keep the camaraderie going, so a Flickr group, called T189 -2009, was formed. The group ebbed and flowed, until by the end of 2012, it had almost become s...

Out like a LAMB?

Feeder cleaning :)

By: sandiquiz, 3:28 PM GMT on February 20, 2016





As many of you know, I run a large Flickr group called "Birds and Wildlife UK".

One of the discussions that come up annually, is to do with garden bird-feeder cleanliness.
