PotM Calendar

The Photo of the Month (see gallery) is a year round calendar of selected nature images and stories with contributions from visitors, friends and fellow photographers.
 When it comes to nature photography, it's not only those exciting 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.

Feral Shades of Grey by Roger Cox
Grey – a colour we associate with the dull, depressing, unassuming, else things neither here nor there. From grey skies to grey areas, it’s fair to say that anything with grey in its name or description is unlikely to set our minds ablaze with interest. That is until we look at the greylag goose.
 Of our four grey geese, the greylag is the UK’s largest native goose and the most widespread. Being the ancestor of the domestic goose, it may well have such a distribution from a historical surplus of captive birds selectively bred from as early as 1360BC! Feral birds are now so numerous that it’s impossible to gauge the size of native populations.
 Some, like this one, reside around urban lakes where there’s considerable human influence on their diet and life expectancy. Naturally, that would be about eight years. However, well-fed individuals have been known to live for as long as twenty years. Oddly enough, they’re the best divers of all wild geese and yet, spend most of their time on land, retreating to water for safety and sometimes to feed.
 While the species remains abundant and thriving, UK greylags are threatened with genetic extinction. So, should you visit your local pond to chance upon an unassuming flock of geese, don’t be fooled by the noise and number of those with that dull-as-dishwater appearance; honking they may be, but from a conservation point of view, not all will be calling for our concern or any need of further interest.
