Coal tit

They are coming quite regularly at present, though I hadn’t seen them for weeks until then.

I’m having a VERY stressful time at the moment trying to get the Fujis to work via a phone app. If they connect at all, they then crash out within a few minutes, requiring a reset of everything, which of course also disturbs the birds. I prefer a USB cable method of controlling the camera, but in the case of Fuji it is completely useless. I have spent many 10s of hours o the problem now and it is seriously affecting my physical and mental health. I am close to the point where the Fujis  will at least go into the junk heap in the garage, or possibly even the refuse bin, as I cannot cope with it much longer. I will revert to micro fourthirds – Panasonic have a good phone app and Olympus an excellent USB tether system, and either/both would put me out of my misery. Sony’s app seems to work, but it and the tethering system are both very lacking in features, and of course none of their cameras (including the latest miracle machine at a price 3 times what I could have afforded even before the current problems) can do focus bracketing, let alone in-camera stacking (not that I want that anyway, as I prefer to control the stacking in the computer).
