Butterflies and Parks

'Weeks', like buses seem to come along in threes - guess it might have something to do with the kids breaking up from school for the summer.

There are three 'weeks' that you can take part in here in the UK.

First up it is Big Butterfly Count week.  With numbers seemingly down this week, I would encourage as many of you to take part.  It will involve just 15 minutes of your time watching and counting, and then a few minutes to submit the results.
If you do, please let us know what you saw - we would love to hear from you.
The second 'week' is 'National Parks' week, celebrating the open and natural spaces of our land.  Again lots to do and see.  Check out the website to see what is on offer.  Maybe something to do if you have kids on holidays.

Finally there is 'Parks Week' - this covers your local parks.   This 'week' also has a photo competition that involves wildlife - so again maybe one that might be of interest to you.

That ends this weeks public service announcements  :-)

    Thanks for your kind comments on my new blog - I have been inspired to try blogging after following you and Dave and others on the EOS forums ad now on your great blogs. Any chance of you bringing your article on settings for the EOS 7D forward as I am still struggling with this, particularly which focus setting to use for BIF.
