Highly Commended image in the 2017 BWPA competition

Hawfinch in cherry tree.


At long last I can announce that one of my images – Hawthorn in a Cherry Tree – has been Highly Commended in the “Habitat” section of the 2017 British Wildlife Photography Awards. That makes three Highly Commended awards, one each time I have entered! Not bad for a landscape photographer. (Removes tongue from cheek……….)

    Congratulations Jerry ……. you work hard at it, landscape or wildlife, you deserve it. Just been unsuccesfully trying to hook up with the current Hawfinch invasion as it happens …. maybe I should just drive to xxxxxxxx!

      Thanks Brian. I was pleased, of course. I’ve censored your post to remove the name of the town concerned, just to be on the safe side. I’m kind of expecting quite a few inquiries about where it was taken but I shall refuse to answer them in the nicest possible way!

      I wouldn’t mind catching up with a few of the hawfinch migrants myself. One was reported flying over Tal-y-bont and there have been quite a few records down in Pembs. Are they all coastal? If you fail maybe you should head over this way in spring next year?

      Nice to hear from you.


  2. Many congratulations Jerry!
