    A Southport photographer's ruffled a few feathers to win a national contest.

    Amateur photographer John Fisher won the national retailer Wilko's Wild Bird Calendar photography competition with this eye-catching photograph of a starling.

    He's won a £100 Wilko voucher and his photograph is one of 12 featured in the company's official 2019 calendar.

    He said: “I was delighted to discover that I had won and that my photo would be used in the 2019 calendar.

    “I took this photo in my back garden last May, when fledgling starlings were begging to be fed. Dried mealworms definitely came up trumps when taking this photo!”

    The 2019 calendar will be on sale in store and online at wilko.com from late 2018.

    Thank goodness it wasn’t won by that arrogant blogger, poster on the other site. He is unbearable already. Well done to John Fisher - super photo.

    I presume you mean Pat © Regan. He doesn't even understand copyright law; that if you post on a public/social media website or blog, copyright is not applicable because it is in the public domain.

    I'm sure I'll get a self righteous response on that as he posts on here under another pseudonym I'm told, but Intellectual Property Rights was one of my responsibilities.

    PS Great picture

    Bullsiht - Copyright remains with the photographer who took the photo, even if they post the said photo on a public/social media website or blog.....IT is still their copyright.

    May I suggest you read the Copyright, Designs and Patent Act 1998. Only last week the European Parliament rejected a Bill (Directive) to try and bring restrictions onto material placed on to new technology platforms by first or third parties (Articles 11 and 13 are the most relevant here) but the law, had it been passed, would have affected other widely used images such as memes.
    Intellectual Property (which is different from Copyright) might be more appropriate for Mr Regan, but then again with Intellectual Property restrictions you don't get a pretty little symbol to impress and make yourself look important.

    I do not know Mr Regan, but as a photographer, I have issued a number of Take Down Notices or DMCA to members of the public and companies who think that because I've placed my photo onto a website, it's fair game for them to use. Wrong, my bank balance can testify to that.
    That pretty little symbol isn't meant to impress, it's to show that the images are copyrighted and belong to the person that took it.

    I remember him and his wife once bragging, on the other site, that they never ever used any pseudonyms and that everything they posted was under their own names.

    Believe it or not as you wish!
