Great article as usual. But the length of the html links makes the page way too wide. Shall I edit them down?

Cheers.

Go for it.

Shall I use "makeashorterlink" or some such like for May?

Might it be better/tidier to hide them within

"Click *here* and *here* for pics"? Then people can see where it's taking them by hovering their mouses over the links

What i do is simply put a "..."s in the text that displays. The link itself obviously stays the same. I will do it now.

I think your way looks neater. My way gives more credit where it is due.

Using a "shorter link" service would do the places we refer to no good at all as they would not get a link, and would be a lot of work

Cool. Your way it is then.

Hopefully, now I've fathomed this new scanner, I can get more of my own pictures on there in future. I've got nice shots for nearly all of them.

Next will probably come wild foods by freshwater.
