POTM Calendar

The Photo Of The Month is a year round calendar of selected nature images and stories with contributions from visitors, fellow photographers and friends.
 When it comes to nature photography, it's not only those fascinating tales of high adventure that often accompany talent and skill for a fabulous result. If a picture is truly worth more than a thousand words then a well-timed shot, or a well framed one, can say just as much about you as a photographer too! So if you'd like to showcase one of your pictures here, free for one calendar month with a short story on how you managed to come by it, then this page is for you.

A Very Berry Christmas by Roger Cox
Victoria Park, Bow, London

Mid-winter can be a challenging time for wildlife. For those animals brave enough to tough it out in the cold at the risk of starvation, the convenience of a readily available food source is certainly a boon, and a bounty, worth fighting for. Hence as Christmas approaches, nothing could be further from the mind of a bird like this song thrush, than sharing those fruits of the festive season.
 The robin and holly may be the iconic emblems of our Seasons Greetings cards, but at this time of year, thrushes can be seen guarding berry bushes. It’s a sight reminiscent of a Yuletide custom many of us can relate to as we eye-out our own tree for the best treats on it, and squabble around its branches for the choice ones to pick!
 The season of goodwill may not have such a far-reaching effect as to cause any generosity from one animal to be bestowed upon another, but speaking as a photographer, capturing a song thrush more than once, in an ideal place it had come to depend on, was for me a gift that simply kept on giving.
 Research has shown that birds which guard food sources in winter have bigger and earlier clutches. So wherever the right kind of tree presents itself as the means to any animal’s survival throughout the dark days of December, you might just spot a thrush, having itself a very berry Christmas, with the prospect of a happy reproductive New Year.
