Judging and voting has taken place and 12 winners have been chosen.
Thank you everyone for voting for our front cover. The winner, with 50.63% of the votes is the blue tit.
Many thanks to all those who entered - judging was very difficult but there could be only 12 winning photos (this year there are 17 runner's-up whose photos will feature as small 'insets'). Also thanks to twice previous calendar winner Jason Curtis who has again helped with the difficult task of judging!
Wherever you watch nature, make sure you’ve got your camera to capture it - there's always next year's competition!
If you're out taking photos don't forget...
...the welfare of the subject is top priority. Don’t stress a subject just for a photo; the wildlife is more important than the image.
...make sure you stay on paths or within designated areas.
