It's been another busy month on the NPL website, with great new content coming in from all corners of the globe. Marine life features strongly this month, including dramatic marlin shots from new contributor Henley Spiers. We're also excited to have fresh material from Charlie Hamilton-James and Uri Golman. Look out also for lots of birds in action and an intriguing feud over a nestbox between jackdaws and grey squirrels!
