Final Entries 2019 NBC Photo Comp


So sadly we come to the last of the entries for the Northants Bird Club Photographic Competition 2019.

I hope you have enjoyed all the previous image instalments and i'm sure you will not be disappointed  in this last instalment.

Although the blog has been a bit flaky at times trying my patience uploading images and it has taken me quite a few hours all told, i'm a little sad it has come to an end.

With over 300 entries you can now take your time to enjoy the full beauty of all the wildlife photographed.

I will admit to being a little bit envious of many images and I hope you will get as much pleasure as I have viewing them.

A big Thank you, to every one who took part and I personally very much look towards seeing your images next year.
