Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

HE win­ners of the an­nual Bri­tish Wildlife Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year awards were an­nounced this week and the as­tound­ing re­sults are on show in a trav­el­ling ex­hi­bi­tion as well as in a lav­ish book from AA Pub­lish­ing (£25, www.bw­pawards.org). The ex­hi­bi­tion of win­ning works starts at the Mall Gal­leries, London SW1 (un­til Septem­ber 10, www.mall­gal­leries.org.uk) be­fore tour­ing to Ast­ley Hall, Lan­cashire (Septem­ber 16–Novem­ber 5); Na­ture in Art, Glouces­ter­shire (Septem­ber 15–Novem­ber 15); Aberys­t­wyth, Ceredi­gion (Novem­ber 12–Jan­uary 14, 2017); Moors Val­ley Coun­try Park, Dorset (Jan­uary 14–Fe­bru­ary 26, 2017); Stock­wood Dis­cov­ery Cen­tre, Lu­ton, Bed­ford­shire (Jan­uary 21–March 26, 2017); Grace­field Arts Cen­tre, Dum­fries (March 8– April 15, 2017) and Nun­ning­ton Hall, North York­shire (May 13–July 9, 2017).

Left to right: 17-year-old Rob­bie Evans took this clever shot of a cam­ou­flaged tawny owl near Welsh­pool, Powys; Si­mon Roy cap­tured a nim­ble vole bal­anc­ing on the top of a but­ter cap mush­room near York; and Paul Col­ley was highly com­mended for his pho­to­graph, en­ti­tled Hello Ducky, of a mal­lard in­ves­ti­gat­ing a brown trout on the River An­ton at Good­worth Clat­ford in Hamp­shire.
