My web site at billbarnes.co.uk updated with more links to my Google Photo Albums, family get togethers and weddings transferred to the 'People' page. Also some snaps from the loud and brightly lit disco for Josh's 21st Birthday bash in Peterborough. Thanks to Graham and Janet for looking after us so well.

No more Google+ soon (I was a rare user with a page and albums) so i've no idea how this blog will have any way of contacting people! Progress eh?

Best to anyone who actually sees this

My new Wildlife albums page

Having had a tidy up of some of my photos I've (for now) completed sorting most of my wildlife pictures into albums on Google Photos.The above page links them all.

Doing this has made me want to travel more to photograph whales and Dolphins, Hummingbirds and other exotic species. Africa for a big game and wild bird safari, Costa Rica, Tobago for jungle and more hummingbirds, Dominican Republic and South Africa for whales. So we need to save up and hope we stay healthy enough to travel in our old age eh?

Very sad to see the hurricane devastation in parts of the Caribbean we visited last December, Dominica where we whale watched with an enthusiastic young dive school,  French Martinique for hummingbirds in the pouring rain, Guadeloupe for reef fish and giant lizards by the roadside in trees and The British Virgin Islands where we found a delightful tiny local park particularly spring to mind.

Hi all,

Having paused to update Colin's website at http://colinharvey.co.uk/ I've found time to finish off my tidy up of my own little place in the web at http://billbarnes.co.uk

I've created a number of wildlife collections from holidays and walks home and abroad. Lots more to do. I've not even started on domestic birds and flowers BUT they are in my walks albums as you well know. Sorry if I'm boring anyone.

Links to many Google Photo albums have been moved to relevant pages. Do remember that you can download photos from any of these if you wish or indeed add the albums to your own Google Photos collections, all free with gmail which is rather nice. These albums also show better on the multitude of screens that people have these days from smart phones to tablets to laptops and PC's, all with different shape and resolution screens! My web software is now obsolete and it is hard to keep up with all this technically! must be getting old. You can see why kids are being taught coding at school now eh?

Off to Norfolk for a day or so at Colin's including Trish's birthday, love to all
