- PHOTO OF THE MONTH
We are now offering a small prize each month to the photographer
of the picture that specially catches our eye - it doesn't have
to be a technically great picture, (although it could!), but perhaps
show some interesting behaviour. The prize will be awarded entirely
at our discetion, and will vary. Potential sponsors, please contact
us here!. This
month, the prize (book on Bird Photography), is awarded to Jason
Hurst for his picture of a Mute Swan catching a fish (see below).
