PotM Calendar

The Photo of the Month (see gallery) 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 Picture of the Adorable Grey by Roger Cox
In 1876 a banker by the name of Thomas Brocklehurst on returning from America released a pair of grey squirrels onto his country estate. The novelty then, of importing greys as pets rapidly took off, but as interest in them waned, a growing trend of releasing them into the wild saw them well-established some fifty years later.
 History may present a picture of the grey squirrel as the unfortunate victim of its introduction as an alien species. However, their arrival-story adds little weight to any pardon they might receive for their role in the decline of our much-loved native red squirrel. For all their cute and comical charms, the grey squirrel is the Typhoid Mary of the squirrel pox virus. A disease they're immune to, but one that's lethal to reds. It's a trait that has made their presence in places where few reds remain wholly unwelcome – but their persona non grata doesn't end there! Despite substantial popularity with photographers and those who enjoy feeding them in parks, it's their widespread success and the damage they cause as rodents that has so maligned them as a naturalised nuisance.
 In their defence, grey squirrels are intelligent expert tree-climbers. This one proved remarkably confiding, showing their more adorable side. Perhaps the only aspect to them deserving any regard we might have for their welfare – which, after all, is the least we can do for the price they now pay for those crimes against nature that brought them here in the first place.
