The February theme was Green, another topic open to interpretation with entries ranging from some lovely green fields, to a windfarm complete with skein of geese - see all of these on our Instagram: instagram.com/countrysidejobs
There was one image that stood out for all of us, this incredible photo of a nesting shag on the Farne Islands NNR taken by Kim Gallagher who says the bird kept "a beady emerald eye on me at all times". It's that emerald eye that really draws you into the beautifully clear photo, with the grassy tussocks in the foreground highlighting the brightness and colour of the watching eye.
