Many of the images sent to our Gallery have been produced using the digiscoping method - if this is new to you, read our FAQ - "What is Digiscoping?" by Andy Bright for a brief introduction, or Digiscoping:The Basics, by Richard Ford for a more detailed look at this fascinating activity.

Enjoy these bird photographs kindly sent to us. If you have an interesting bird (or other wildlife) photograph or drawing you would like featured here, please email or post to address on Contact Page.

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, we are awarding first prize jointly to Nicholas Treadwell and Martin Wilson for their flight shots of Bittern and Avocet respectively.
