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.

The Nut Hacker by Roger Cox
Communal feeding isn't to every bird's liking. Some prefer solitude, while others never share. Yet a variety of garden birds will often come to terms over a well-stocked bird table where disputes are settled, or set aside, by establishing a pecking order. However, these tenuous accords held together by hunger and the need to banish it, are no defence against the chaos caused by the sudden appearance and departure of those without table manners. For in making its dashing entrance, and exit, to these backyard bonanzas comes our best chance to see a rare garden visitor; a speedy, agile party-crasher with a penchant for scaring other birds, as well as scattering seeds from bird tables across the land!
 This feisty blue, grey and buff coloured agitator resembling a small woodpecker, else a cross between a blue tit and a wryneck, is the nuthatch – a solitary species in the UK with more than just a talent for a dash-and-grab. Sporting a bandit mask with its small, slender bill, the nuthatch (meaning nut hacker) lives up to its name of breaking into nuts by lodging them into a crevice and pecking them open. This classic pose shows its unique ability to scale the trunks of trees head-first in any direction when searching for more seasonal fare like insects. However, when these become scarce, they deftly avoid starvation by reverting to type. For the nuthatch (literally) a hard case of survival, though one in which the solution is never too difficult to crack.
