Competition judge Paul Wilkinson, Head of Living Landscape for The Wildlife Trusts, said "We are delighted to see how many people from around the UK were inspired by the competition to explore nature in their local area.  This year’s entries reflected a real passion, and affection, for local wildlife. This competition is a special opportunity to give the natural world that surrounds us the recognition, and reverence, it deserves."

Like the jelly fish image but the video I would not have posted on you tube, jerky and out of focus, not for me.
