Royal Mail Postage
We regularly receive post of all shapes and sizes and it is becoming more common that incorrect postage is being attached, or no postage at all! This results in us having to go to the sorting office in Downpatrick and having to pay the postage and the charges. The following link is very easy to use and should prove helpful in calculating the correct postage amount, http://www.royalmail.com/price-finder

What's that ship?
There are times that shipping visible from the park sparks an interest. I am then asked what the ship is! How would I know! Well, all changed now. The map below,
linked from marinetraffic.com
will tell you. It is in real time and updates quickly.
Place your mouse over the map.
Some of the controls will be familiar from using Google maps. The Zoom In and
Out bar is pretty standard as is the CLICK and DRAG function to move the map. CLICK on a ship's icon to obtain its detail.
If no ships are visible, ZOOM OUT to cover a wider area. Have fun!
What's that plane?
I was pointed in the direction of this website by a friend. Facinating, and again, in real time. Why stop at shipping? This data comes from
Flightradar24.com. (That's my
condition fulfilled) CLICK on the plane for detail. Have fun!
