Villagers in Dorset thought they must be mistaken after sightings of a creature dubbed the Beaminster Polar Bear. The shy white animal has since been identified as an albino badger. Wildlife photographer Colin Varndell's search for the elusive creature had lasted for nearly a year. So when he was told of a white creature seen on a garden lawn in Bearminster, Dorset, he set up camp.

Willow the white whale swims next to a normal coloured whale off the coast of Spitsbergen, Norway. Dan Fisher was on a boat trip to Svalbard in Norway when he noticed a giant white hump rise from the water. Rushing up a mast to get a better look, he quickly realised he was witnessing one of nature's rarest sights - a white whale. Its colour is caused by a condition called leucism, caused by a reduction in skin pigment. Picture: Dan Fisher / Barcroft Media
