WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre has launched a photograph competition to showcase the best wildlife on display at the centre.
Upload your best snap taken at the centre over the past year for your chance to win some fantastic camera equipment.
Centre manager, Nick Brooks, said: “Many of you take photos of the wildlife you see at Martin Mere and, this autumn, we want to see them.
“The basics are simple, if you are over 18, if its digital, if it’s of wildlife and was taken at WWT Martin Mere in 2017 it will be eligible.
“As well as a chance to win a great prize, all pictures entered will be on display for everyone to see in our exhibition hall throughout the months of December, January and February.”
To enter the competition for your chance to win fantastic prizes, upload your best pictures taken at the centre in 2017 to either our Flickr group “Martin Mere: Photography Competition 2017”.
Closing date for the competition is November 30 and the winners will be informed in the first week of December.

The last photograph competition was in 2015 to celebrate Martin Mere’s 40th anniversary.
The winner was Bruce Falcon with this picture of a goldeneye, with the runner up being Maggie Henshaw with this picture of a moorhen chick.
Nick continues: “The standard of entries is always very high when we do photography competitions, I am excited to see what amazing images we will see this time. “Good luck to everyone who enters”. WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre is open every day (except Christmas Day) from 9.30am to 6pm and parking is free of charge.
Situated off the A59, it is signposted from the M61, M58 and M6.
The centre is also accessible via the Southport to Manchester and the Liverpool to Preston line by train from Burscough Rail Stations.
