The winners of the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership (OWLP) Snap the Ouse Photography Competition have been announced.
The winner of the adult prize was Simon Stirrup from Aldreth for his beautiful shot of a majestic Barn Owl, taken on the Ouse Washes near Welney.
The winner of the children’s prize was eight-year-old Manea Community Primary School pupil Ewan Hannam. His shot depicts a duck’s nest in a pond at WWT Welney.
They won a basket of Ouse Washes themed presents including a bird nesting box, novels by Francis Pryor and Victor Watson, a poetry book by Fen Speak’s Elaine Ewart, biodiversity jigsaw puzzles and bug safari kits.
