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 discretion, and will vary. Potential sponsors, please contact us here!. This month, the prize, is awarded to Adrian Dancy (see below).
