Following a request from Roger on the Wild About Britain site I have collated my records for 2010; upto today; and joined this site.

I will attempt to send details of sightings for which I have decent photos.

As I don't yet have any idea of what I am doing, I will send a first small batch and see what happens. If everything works out OK I will send the rest. So if any changes to my 'system' are requested; please let me know.

All records from around the Salcombe, Devon area.

10/03/10 - My home TQ8 8JW - SX731385; Eristalis tenax f.
14/03/10 - Same address; Eristalis tenax f; Meliscaeva auricollis f.
26/03/10 - Same address; Eristalis pertinax m & f, more than one of each
27/03/10 - Same address; Eristalis pertinax m & f
04/04/10 - Same address; Eristalis pertinax f
05/04/10 - Same address; Eristalis pertinax m
12/04/10 - Same address; Syrphus sp. m
13/04/10 - Same address; Episyrphus balteatus f (rather dark specimen)

If any changes to this method of recording are preferred, please let me know. If everything is OK I will continue later and include records from other places in this area. Offhand, I think I have around another 50 to include.

I am from a pre digital age and find the internet confusing, but hopefully I will eventually manage to understand this site.

Also, I can't understand any Microsoft programmes so I don't have Excel but my desktop publishing software can create lists and tables and operate PDF with no problems.

Geoff.

Great stuff. I am sure Roger will pick these records up in due course.

Meanwhile, if you download the open office software it contains a spreadsheet programme. You can get it FREE here: http://why.openoffice.org/

OK then. I will try to add another month, in another post; but a couple of species will need double checking so I will attempt to link those photos, from my P base galleries, in other threads.

I have downloaded that programme and will have a proper look at it later.
