A CALENDAR showcasing the best of nature in Cumbria has been released by Cumbria Wildlife Trust.

Following a competition inviting the public to send in their top nature photographs, staff and volunteers at the charity picked their top 12.

The calendar is available to buy for £7.99 at cumbriawildlifetrust.org.uk/shop, with all proceeds going to the Wildlife Trust.

The above picture - taken by Peter Boardman, of Brough - is the photograph featured for the month of August.
