Despite the very wet January we have had and the vast flooding that has taken place in some parts of the UK, the snowdrop has managed to still flourish and flower in those areas that have been drier and not affected. When checking out the links in our Where to Photograph Snowdrops list, many of the venues reported they are out now and it is a good time to visit.

Your First Visit
Wildlife Photography In February
February Diary

The flooding on the Somerset Levels is vast, but Somerset is a large county, Snowdrop Valley at Weddon Cross on Exmoor is still open for business during this month. Of course there are various woodlands and gardens throughout the UK where you will find them and our list will give you a head start on places to look, but I expect there will be many woodlands near you, if you take a look.

This month sees the start of The Scottish Snowdrop Festival when various places throughout Scotland take part opening up their winter woodlands for visitors to explore and get up close.

February being the month of Love, with Valentines Day on the 14th, it is also a time when many of our wildlife start to become amorous and displays of courtship will be seen.  In some of our woodlands near to lakes likes those on the Somerset Levels there will be Grey Heron's getting ready for the next generation in their heronries. On our lakes and ponds you may come across the Great Crested Grebe with their signature heart shape courtship ritual of passing items to each other, amongst others.

Don't forget that this year see the first year of a NEW photography show at the NEC in Birmingham, called The Photography Show, it is taking the place of the old Focus on Imaging Show and is the largest of the photographic shows to take place in the UK, suitable for enthusiasts and professional photographers alike.

Let's Explain How This Resource Works

One of the most popular features is a monthly diary covering interesting and unusual things on, around the UK, in the two months ahead.

Everything that appears, or ever has, is indexed in a number of ways, alphabetically, by topic, by county, and often linked into sections. Many of the sections have their own front doorways so people with specific interests have direct access through these doors to their area of interest.

Up until July 2012 we also produced a monthly newsletter as apart of this resource, but like magazines going over the years we found it becoming a little repetitive, so decided to concentrate on the resource development and drop the newsletter issues. You can get back to see every newsletter, from the beginning, via our recent editions link.

All of our links are coded showing you if it's an external link or one of our own pages and when it is, the type of page it is. You will find a key to the most popular ones at the bottom of the contents panel on the left and clicking on any of the symbols will bring up a full list. Holding your mouse over one of these symbols tells you what it means.
