We are pleased to announce the winners of this year’s annual photography competition.
WINNER FAUNA & OVERALL WINNER OF THE ABIGAIL RHODES TROPHY
Stonechat Female on Bracken – Stephen Kirkup.
Our judge commented “The reason it won is that I especially loved it appearing out of its habitat and not many folk focus on the female”.

Large Red Damselfly on Whin – Stephen Kirkup
