The first competition of the new season has arrived early in a packed calendar of events but members responded well with a total of 72 entries - probably a club record!.
Winners are chosen by members with a show of hands and new member June Atkinson was eventually victorious with her perfectly captured nature photograph entitled "Little Owl".
Second place went to Tony McCann’s very clever image "Complicated" which led to lots of questions from assembled members about the exact creation process. In third place was another of June’s avian images, “Centurion” - the 100th Red Kite chick released in Derwent Valley in 2008. Finally 4th place went to “Newcastle Quayside” by Elspeth Peddie.
