2019 Calendar and Photo Competition
The Group will be producing a 2019 calendar featuring photos taken by members of the Group. The calendar will go on sale in September.
You can submit a maximum of three digital photos for consideration by handing them to a committee member on a memory stick or CD (which will be returned).
Alternatively you can email low-resolution jpeg images to email@example.com If the images are selected for the calendar we will require high-resolution files.
The photographs must have been taken in the UK by the person submitting the photograph.
The copyright of all photographs will remain with the photographer. The subject must be British wildlife or wildlife habitats.
No wildlife or habitats should be harmed, put at risk or unduly disturbed in the process of taking the photographs and the photographer must abide by the Code of Conduct for Wildlife Photography.
The photographs must be in landscape format and ideally should be 3508 x 2480 pixels.
The committee will decide which photographs will be used for the calendar. Their decision is final and no correspondence regarding the results will be entered into.
The deadline for submitting photographs is 31 July 2018. Any photo submitted after that date will not be considered.
One of the 2017 juveniles
at Lincoln Cathedral
Photo by Peter Skelson
Peregrines nested for the first time on Lincoln Cathedral's main tower in 2007 when three young successfully fledged. Three young fledged again in 2008, 2014 2016 and 2017, two in 2009, one in 2010 and four in 2011, 2013 and 2015. None of the eggs hatched in 2012.
Volunteers are needed to help at this year's watchpoint on Saturdays or Sundays in June or July 2018. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer.(see the 'About Us' page for contact details).
Postcards of one of Lincoln Cathedral juvenile peregrines, a female approximately 7 weeks old, are available from Lincoln Cathedral shop.

Free coach travel for children on Sunday coach outings
You can book one free coach seat for a child under the age of 16 for each adult seat you book and pay for in advance - any admission charges will still apply, only the coach travel is free. We realise that it can be expensive for families to visit nature reserves so we are making this offer to encourage more people to bring children with them and encourage them to take an interest in birds, wildlife and our wonderful natural heritage.
