A picture taken by a budding Lowestoft photographer will appear in households across the country after being selected for inclusion in a national calender.

Michael Baker’s image depicting a snow white owl gazing into a camera mid-flight will be featured in the wilko Wild Bird Calender 2019.

He was one of 12 winners who will see their photography featured in the calender and he also received a £100 wilko voucher.

Mr Baker said: “I am a keen amateur wildlife photographer and I really enjoy taking pictures of wild owls.

“What I love about this image is that the owl was looking directly at me, I thought it would be a great addition to the calender.”

Neil Fairhurst, pets buyer at wilko, was part of the panel who selected the photographs to be included in the calender.

He said: “It was a tough decision as there could only ever be 12 winners, but we were extremely impressed by Michael’s photo.”
