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.

Well-Spotted by Peter Fletcher
Edmonton, London

 As I was walking to some local shops near the Galliards Estate, I heard a chick calling from one of the lime trees by Jubilee Park, at first I looked and looked, but couldn’t tell from where the sound was coming.
 On my way back, I stopped to look and listen again; only this time, I saw a greater spotted woodpecker on the same tree near a nest hole feeding its young. “That’s it!” I thought, “that had to be it.” After the adult bird flew away, this single youngster (on the verge of fledging) poked its head out from the hole, only to see me looking up at it - a surprise to us both!
 I watched and waited for a while as its parents made frequent visits with food, sometimes to feed it and at other times to encourage it to leave the nest. It was almost as though the chick kept saying, “great, time to eat!” and the parents, “no, its time to fledge.” Talk about luck and fun rolled into one. As things looked to stay that way for some time, I dashed home to fetch the camera. When I returned, I managed to take several pictures of the chick looking out for more food.
 On the whole, you could say it was a shot of a well-spotted greater spotted woodpecker that was too good to miss!
