A nature reserve in Carlisle wants keen photographers to aid it in its latest venture.

The Watchtree Nature Reserve is looking for photographs to feature in its 2022 calendar.

All pictures used in the calendar will be credited.

The Watchtree Nature Reserve said on social media: “We generally look for images of native Watchtree species including animals, insects, plants, birds, fungi etc.

“If you have anything suitable, email them to senga@watchtree.co.uk in the highest quality available.

“Please don’t post them or send them via Facebook as Facebook diminishes the quality and we’d prefer people see your photos in the best high-quality print."

In line with the Government’s easing of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, The Watchtree Nature Reserve have been able to reopen their nature reserve and visitors centre cafe.

Cycle sales, servicing and repair are also open, but the wildlife hides and education services are closed.

The Watchtree Nature reserve is a fully independent and sustainable charity. They are supported by memberships, donations, events and their cafe.
