Members Evening and Blog Update

"Little Tom with a Little Mouse" by Ingrid Nicholls

Date for your diaries... Saturday the 9th of July will be when our annual Members Evening takes place. A few of you have been asking when it will be this year, and wanting it to be announced earlier so you can make sure you are free to come along, and so with a little nagging I now have a date confirmed with the office.

So, Saturday the 9th of July. On this date members of the Centre will be able to stay on after our normal open hours until 8pm to see the animals in the evening. As per usual we will put on another couple of talks for you, and have the keepers walking around to show off some animals and answer questions.

A reminder and more news on this nearer the time, but until then don't forget to write it in your diaries, and maybe these pictures offer a clue of what to expect?!.. er, and maybe not... those that know me well now know I usually come up with the schedule the day before or morning of the evening.

The new look blog seems to be going down well. I have had a few criticisms with the larger photos, but overall most seem to be happy or non different to the new look. If some of you are wondering, what has changed? Well, that goes to show you very little... The widths of the blog have increased to display nicer on most modern screens, and the photos now appear larger to accompany the new widths and to make it easier for people to actually see the pictures without clicking on them.

I am very wary of not having this blog come across as a "photography" blog, and so don't want the photos to dominate the posts. But then also appreciate that people like to see photos of our animals, and how well known the BWC is as a venue to take photographs of British wildlife. I am hoping this new balance works. Have no fear, the news and updates on the animals and Centre will continue to be the focus of this blog!

So anything else new? The eagle-eyed of you may have seen there is now a search option under the blog archive on the right hand side. This will make it easier for you to find older posts on a particular animal or subject if you so wish. But that is it, no more plans for changes... except maybe an up to date photograph of myself to on the right :-)

Don't forget... Member Evening: Saturday 9th of July, 2016, 5pm - 8pm!
