Aaaghsociations

This is a bugbear of mine, so excuse me if I go off on one, but why do an association when you don't know what the species involved are?! I just don't see the point...it seems like the worst sort of biological recording possible.

Nothing personal...I love all your postings, Simon, and you are not the only one doing it.

First Time I've Ever Tried It

Hi Ian,

I was experimenting. I haven't tried out this feature before, and I'm not clear how it's supposed to work, or what it does.
I've often felt frustrated when there's more than one creature, plant or whatever in an image, and unless you either post it twice under two headings, or use the comment fields, there seems no other option. In my mind the association was the somewhat violent confrontation between the to birds.
I was hoping that this was the cure. From your reaction it seems not!

Thanks for your kind remark on my postings. One of these days I'll have to set up my own website, I think.

Regards

Simon
