  • Sally Hallam on Little Egret Agreed!
  • Ian Phipps on DeadwoodLooks like a dead giraffe ...
  • David @ the HALL of EINAR on Gannets at NoupThanks so much Jenny - it's great that you managed to get to Noup and that you experienced the wonderful Westraak. I'm delighted you had the full Puffin experience after coming so far.
  • Elisabeth Sidler on It’s not an animal, plant or a fungus… but definitely less deadly than homo sapiens…. Looks can be misleading and treacherous….
  • Jenny Rich on Gannets at NoupDavid, I was lucky to see the gannets nesting on the cliffs near Noup Head in 2023. I did a day tour with Westrack Tours and we went out to the cliffs. It was wonderful looking down to see all the birds. I also enjoyed seeing groups of puffins at Castle o' Burrian. Your photos of the gannets are great. Jenny from Nowra, New South Wales.
  • David @ the HALL of EINAR on SparrowYes, they are such beautiful birds. I suspect the attitude to them is very different in the UK, where they are native, and the US, where they are an introduced species.
  • David @ the HALL of EINAR on Adult Human female – the sequelIt's certainly upsetting that there are more and more victims of such a massive medical scandal, and so many of them started so young.
  • David @ the HALL of EINAR on Adult Human female – the sequelThanks Marianna - that's so kind of you.
  • David @ the HALL of EINAR on Adult Human female – the sequelThanks so much Lynn. I really appreciate your support.
  • Megan Champion on SparrowI’m happy to see other human beings recognizing these birds for their beauty just as you would a bluebird or cardinal. So many people think they are pests and that really bothers my soul. They are birds, our friends and we need to protect them.
  • Lenny on Adult Human female – the sequelThe trans child is like the vegan cat. It is the result of adults pushing their ideology onto others.
  • Marianna Barber on Adult Human female – the sequelDavid, this is a cogent and brilliant response. Thank you for taking the time to reply with eloquence and wisdom.
  • Lynn Genevieve on Adult Human female – the sequelDavid - I salute you and will be sharing and repeating your wise words widely.
  • Rainer Sandrock on ArchaeopteryxHello again I think to know the reason for confusion, I was referring to the upper most picture, showing - so far as I think to know now a Pterodactylus kochi - and you have been referring to the drawing of the "London example" of Archaeopteryx. Greetings Rainer Sandrock
  • Rainer Sandrock on ArchaeopteryxHello again I have another more fundamental question: Officially there are 11 examples of Archeaopteryx, what are all the other samples including the one on the very top? Are they just similar or something else? Thanks for your reply.
  • David @ the HALL of EINAR on ArchaeopteryxMy pleasure, Rainer. It’s the one in London, UK.
  • Rainer Sandrock on ArchaeopteryxThanks for the information, which one is the Natural History Museum?
  • David @ the HALL of EINAR on Archaeopteryx“The Museum’s specimen of Archaeopteryx lithographica originates from the latest Jurassic Solnhofen Limestone in Bavaria, Germany. It was among more than 1,900 Solnhofen fossils bought from Dr Karl Haberlein in 1862 for £700.”
  • Rainer Sandrock on ArchaeopteryxHello, I have a gypsum copy of the archaeopteryx shown in the picture of the very top. Where is the origin of this specimen?
  • Lynn Genevieve on Grey sealI’ve always distinguished them as the common seal being the cute dog-like face and the greys tending towards ‘ugly’ although I still love them all.
  • Lynn Genevieve on Fieldfare – forty years ago in my nature notebooksOne early winter when living on an island Eilean Shona possibly 2015, I saw a pair of Ring Ouzel in a flock of Redwings feeding at the Rowan by our house - unforgettable…
  • Jane Lovell on Life and death on the wavesAmazing capture. Intriguing!
  • David @ the HALL of EINAR on Victoria amazonicaWow, I'd love to see that, Sally. Another reason to plan a trip, I think! Thanks!
  • Keira Cloake on Why do people hate Greta Thunberg?Im not going to lie, im on greta's side with all of this stuff. People really do need to wake up and realise, shes just a young girl who was trying to make the world a better place, but everyone took it the wrong way. And i think men only hated her because shes autistic, I think shes really brave. And its not just us kids who are ruining the world, its everyone. Young, Mid-aged and Old. The smoking, the vaping, the plastic, the DRIVING. kids cant drive, so how is that our fault?
