BBOWT’s photographer of the month is Simon Blackwell with this delightful photo of a Tree Creeper taken in the village of Kencott on the edge of Oxfordshire. Simon works on a farm in this area and is lucky enough to have permission to set up a private hide to get close and view all the woodland has to offer. As well as working on the farm Simon is a keen amateur wildlife photographer who enjoys watching wildlife as much as he does photographing it for others to see. Birds common or rare are his main passion as he says ‘they all seem to have their own personality’. He is currently trying to capture an image of a merlin that he has viewed in the area on a number of occasions. We wish Simon the best of luck with his mission and cannot wait to see the result! We'd love to see your photos of wildlife through the seasons. Share them with us on Twitter and Facebook.
