The British Wildlife Photography Awards proudly announce the winners for 2019. The awards celebrate the work of amateur and professional photographers and the beauty and diversity of British wildlife.
The winning images were chosen from thousands of entries, including two junior categories to encourage young people to connect with nature through photography.
To mark its tenth anniversary and help raise awareness about our coast; its incredible biodiversity and the threats it is facing, BWPA expanded the Coast and Marine category to include Wales, Scotland, England, and Northern Ireland & the Coast of Ireland.
The Overall Winning image:
Behind Bars (Grey heron), London, Daniel Trim
Grey herons thrive around London’s wilder waterways, but they also do well in more urban settings such as the smaller parks and canals. This individual was hunting in the cover of a bridge. The morning light shining through a grill gives the impression that the bird is trapped as it gazes out through the mesh.
