Had a text this evening asking if I’d given permission to the Birding Afloat blog to use my photo of the Azorean Yellow-legged Gull at Rutland Water – I hadn’t! On checking the blog I found not only had the owner used my photo, cropped badly from a crop, but that as you read the post it implies it’s his fucking photo!

I’m sure you can see the similarities. It seems this blogger has form, well not using my photos you don’t. I’m happy for anyone to use my shots but at least have the decency to a) ask, and b) credit me.
