King Eiders off Vardo, Norway by Hugh Harrop - 12th place in BBBPY 2009. Canon EOS-1D Mark III with EF300mm f/2.8L IS USM +1.4x converter.
Delighted to see the results of the Bird Photograph of the Year competition published in the August edition of British Birds. I managed 12th place with the above image and this is the fifth consecutive year that I have been short listed - I came third in 2006 and fifth in 2007. My congratulations to the winner, Kit Day for his great shot of Glaucous Gulls.
