Many thanks to BPC member Kevin for giving us the heads up on this Youtube video, which is all about how to encourage birds into the garden and how to provide them with natural looking perches whilst you, the photographer, take the photographs from the comfort of the house, shed or even a garden chair.

Scanning and repairing old photographs

Many thanks to BPC Member, Margaret, for the following two links.

How to repair old and/or damaged photographs


If you don't have a scanner, it's worth using a macro lens or macro facility on a tripod mounted camera and making a new digital image of the old one.  As a digital image it's repaired in just the same way as if it had been scanned.
