Not happy today. After my visit on Wednesday to Quarry Walk I realised I messed up big time. When changing over memory cards I'd place my small bag containing the cards on the ground and forgot to pick them up, worse still as I had work related things to do on Thursday I hadn't realised until late afternoon. Off I sped to the location and realised they'd been picked up by someone. As I only photograph in a couple of locations I knew where they should've been. Not many people venture to where I was, in fact the whole time I've been there I've only seen TWO OTHER BIRDERS AND NO DOG WALKERS etc. So I tweeted hoping to nudge people's consciousness but alas no response. Now I'm not too bothered about the cards I've got loads but to loose them is a pain. Sadly the images are still on the cards, they hadn't been formatted after being backed up to my external hard drive and online backup. So I haven't lost the images, however I know one card has air of Short eared Owls from about three years back which might've proved to tempting for some toggers.....perhaps. Like I've said the images have all been posted both on my website and blog (like my header image) and have the RAW images in storage so now I'm just waiting for to see if the images appear anywhere online or for sale, IF and I'm hoping it's a BIG if this happens mark my words two thing WILL happen, I will legally prosecute for copyright theft and secondly persecute. I'm not happy as I've said sat at this spot near the reeds in the long grass all these years I've only ever seen two people both birders here and NEVER Joe Public and dogs etc....NOT HAPPY.
