This month has seen a strong focus on tropical birds, with great new hummingbirds, birds of paradise, toucans and hornbills. Look out too for new African wildlife including intimate studies of elephants and wild dogs, coverage on some bizarre wasp species and some strong new horse and pony material. Not to forget some beautiful British landscapes and Okavango aerial shots....
