Hi All
I know it's only the start of the season but I am thinking about beginning another Calendar for 2019.

As it takes a while to organise and produce if any of you are interested in raising money for the charities once again, please consider any photo opportunities in your garden over the coming months.
As previously I will not be able to accept photo's taken from screens or bird box camera's as unfortunately the files are not big enough or have decent enough quality to fit into the software used to print the calendars.
However, ordinary camera shots work well therefore the bigger the file the better!!
Thanks
P.S Please do not wait until the end of the forum season to send your pictures as a selection process will be conducted.
Send to email calendar18@nexel.co.uk

Kathy

I'll get on this over next few weeks, I have some song thrushes building in ivy at moment.

I'll try and get some nice pictures of the chicks in nest and after fledgling as its something abit different to the usual birds but of course any of the other fledgling birds that nest I'll get pictures of too.

Then you can pick what you wish.

Looking forward to seeing all the lovely pictures from the members again!

Hello All

If you have a photograph you would like to have considered for our 2019 calendar please take note that you need to send me the hard copy not edited ones used for the forum.

The file size must be 2048 x1365 or greater. Send your photo's to
calendar18@nexel.co.uk

You are not obliged to purchase a calendar even if your photo is accepted. Our main aim is to raise money as we did last year for the BTO & RSPB, which exceeded £100.00

The cut off date for submissions will be 30th June 2018 as I have to find spare time to do this.
All names and email addresses will be kept secure and will be deleted after our project is completed.

If you have something to offer please do not leave the forum until you have made contact with me.


Many thanks
Kathy

Calendar 2019 submissions -

I understand some members are having difficulty sending large photo files to calendar18@nexel.co.uk

Please contact me if you are and I will give you an alternative address.


Thanks
Kathy

Hi everyone
As I am sitting waiting to hatch Roll on the floor laughing I have completed the front proof cover of our 2019 Calendar. There will be a few tweaks here and there but I usually do that after having one printed.
This is just a reminder to get in your pictures before end of June if you want to be included.
There are still a few months vacant so please send as soon as you have a good one and as I said I will see if it suits the software.

Many thanks
Kathy Very Happy

They do Waxworms and Marioworms, I wonder would BT's be interested in those? I know Robins would be!

Hi BTK

Don't know much about Marioworm but Pets at Home had nothing left on the shelf except Locusts! Anyway I am expecting a delivery of Waxworms and Mealies today so little Robin won't miss out. I just eked out what I had left in the bag over the holiday but feel guilty once I've started something and can't fulfill the requirements! So hope they turn up otherwise I'm going to have some sad faces in the garden Sad
Hope all is going well at yours with the BT late nest. Very Happy

As I have a large sewing project to begin soon Shocked I have to start work on finishing the Calendar for 2019 now that the season is almost over and we go off for summer holiday's. Very Happy

This will be my last calendar Sad
If you would like to take part there are a couple of places left but it will be 'first come first served' I'm afraid so I would be grateful if you could send any photo's to me that you would like considered ASAP.

Once I get the orders in I can price up and inform you on here. I hope to be able to keep the total price at 10.00 pounds per calendar as of last year which will include printing, P&P + a donation to one/both of the bird charities. Obviously the more we order the more we can donate to our worthy causes.

Closing date still stands at June 30th for submissions. Very Happy

Thanks for your input & co-operation.
Kathy x

Hi Kathy,

My daughter would like to buy one for me for a Christmas present, but she's not a member here, so can I still send her the email link you have listed?

Thanks,
