Red Grouse

A trip on to Danby Moor gave me some great views of Red Grouse. Very well camouflaged within the heather, there call lets you know that they are around somewhere and with a little bit of patience they slowly start to appear out of the heather.
Very disappointed with not seeing a single raptor and the only other bird present on the moor were a couple of Stonechats. The moors at this time of the year are quite desolate and cold, but are still worth a visit, you never know what you might come across.

Rather nice grouse shots Steve.

My header on the blog, along with everyone elses, appears to have gone pear-shaped. How can I off-centre the title, and what size does the background photo need to be resized to - any help appreciated.

Dave - Regarding your blog header, you can not off centre the title, the software on the blog will only let you put text in front of an image centered or you can hide the text and just have an image.

My headers are created in Photoshop and saved as one image then on my blog i assign the image to hide the orginal text which i first created on day one of putting the blog together.

The actual size of the image that i use for my headers is as follows:
Width 22.58cm (640 pixels)Height 6.1cm (173 pixels) Res 72dpi.

If you need any more info on this matter just get in touch - Steve
