BRITISH SEASONS CATEGORYWINNER

Paul Sawer - Seasonal BlueTit

After finding a suitable location containing a photogenic scene, I supplement any natural food sources in the area by adding peanuts for a while to encourage the birds to return to one spot, and then I erect a hide. It generally doesn’t take long for birds to appear and blue tits are always among the first to visit.

DOCUMENTARY SERIES AND EVERYDAYNATURE CATEGORYWINNER LawrieBrailey Britain’sMost LovedMammal

Hedgehogs are one of the UK’s best- loved creatures, but they are also one of the most at risk. Numbers have plummeted by 96% since the 1950s, and mankind is mostly to blame. Human- based injuries can be devastating to hedgehog populations, but there is hope. Wildlife rescue centres, such as The Wildlife Aid Foundation, exist to redress the balance of mankind and nature, aiming to rehabilitate and release animals harmed by our actions.

Location: Various, Cornwall Subject: European hedgehog, Erinaceus europaeus Tech details: Nikon D3 with 105mm macro lens. Exposure 1/125sec at f/8 and ISO 1600 lawriebrailey.co.uk
