After much deliberation a winner has finally been chosen for our Photographic competition. Jon Hossack has won first place, and a prize of £50, for his beautiful photo of our ringed teal
These birds are very skittish, and their boat could do with a patch up, so we are very impressed that Jon managed to make them look so photogenic.
The three runners up, who will each receive a family ticket to Totnes Rare Breeds, are as follows:
1) Orlando Lewry, for his iamge of Oscar the scops owl and his whiskers:
2) Colin Aitkin, with his unusual photo of Benjie the bengal eagle owl folding his wings in flight:
3) Gavin Ducie, who captured Benjie looking very cross, and all the more handsome for it:
The winner in the children's category was twelve year old Louis Berthaud, who caught Treacle the golden guernsey smirking: not easy since he never stays still.
Everyone would like to say well done to all who entered. The standard was particularly high and there weren't enough prizes to go round everyone who deserved them. We always welcome photos from visitors who are proud of their pictures and don't mind us using them - keep an eye on our adverts, website and next year's brochure. Thank you also to everyone who came to the photography day and made it so enjoyable. We hope to see you all next year! Keep your eyes open for the dates of 2011's photography days.
