When Kane Strangwidge launched his Birds of Millthorpe page on Facebook his intention was to highlight the lesser known birds that frequent the gardens in and around the village.

So popular has the page been that Mr Strangwidge has collated a dozen images for his limited release Birds of Millthorpe calendar.

"I had thought of doing a few other things as well first including a map of where each bird has been sighted, but now's the time to produce a calendar," he said.

IN OTHER NEWS:

"I really enjoyed taking the photos and this is a great way of getting them out for people to enjoy permanently."

The demand has already exceeded supply and he's been hurriedly organising a reprint.

"There is a limited window for the sale of calendars where they're relevant so we thought that now is the right time to produce it."

The selection process also included the input from his daughter Addison who is also a keen birdwatcher.

"I like all the pictures but the fantail is my favourite," she said.

To order a copy contact Mr Strangwidge through his Birds of Millthorpe page on Facebook.
