Congratulations to the winners of this year's calendar competition; the race to win in 2019 is now on!

Fieldfare (c) John CaswellGill Smith's brown hare topped the public vote to become overall winner of our 2018 competition and features on our 2019 calendar.  Who will win this time round?

Thanks to the team at Lower Smite Farm who get involved with the judging and especially thanks to our external judges (and previous winners) Jason Curtis  and Pete Walkden

You don't need the best kit in the world but a dab of patience and a spot of luck will probably come in handy!

Don’t forget...

...the welfare of the subject is top priority. Don’t stress a subject just for a photo; the wildlife is more important than the image.

...make sure you stay on paths or within designated areas.
