  4. Flight
  5. Hidden lives
  6. ‘Baby’ birds
  7. Art (inspired by or created during lockdown)
  8. Water
  9. Mammals
  10. Butterfly or moth study

Our next weekly themes are:-

  1. Action and/ or funny shots
  2. Landscapes – photographic or artwork

If you wish to enter either of these, (and are not on facebook), please send me your entries via email to groupleader@rspbgravesend.org.uk .
The deadlines for submission are Sunday 5th July 6pm and Sunday 12th July 6pm respectively.
