Back of Camera photos: There seems to be an increasing trend to submit photographs from backs of cameras and while we encourage this for newly found rarities, it is unnecessary for common or long staying birds. Please, if possible, wait until you can download the original pictures onto your computer and then submit these, the quality is far better and aesthetically more pleasing. Many thanks for your cooperation.
