We recently spoke to member and regular Nature Table contributor Andrew Holloway about his wildlife photography
He sent us a series of 12 photographs representing each month of that most peculiar of years, 2020, when wildlife was a lifesaver to many of us:
January - a lapwing at Pulborough Brooks
February - the frogs turned up on the first of the month, which was three weeks earlier than the year before.
March - lockdown starts. The garden really comes into its own. A pigeon on the birdfeeder.
April - the tadpoles are growing fast. A close-up shot really brings out the patterns.
May - for the first time we have had starlings visiting the feeders as we now put out fat-balls as well as sunflower seeds. Only the starlings and long-tailed tits seem to exclusively feed on the fat-balls.
June - the first lockdown ends. A Long-legged fly seen on Chailey Common.
July - a female Common Blue butterfly with uncommon colouration.
August - Wall Brown butterfly taken at Firle Beacon.
September - a Hummingbird Hawk-moth in the garden. First one I've ever seen, let alone photographed.
October - a common lizard at Old Lodge. First time I've managed anything other than a simple shot.
November - Rye Harbour. First good shot of a Turnstone
December - first split-gill fungus at Leonardslee Gardens
