NETHERTON snapper Victoria Mowbray was among the winners when Worcestershire Wildlife Trust staged a county-wide photography competition.

More than 250 images were entered with the winners set to feature in the Trust's 2015 calendar which is already on sale.

Victoria's picture of starling murmuration in Eckington will be February's offering in the calendar.

Wendy Carter, communications manager for the Trust, said: "We were overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of this year's entries.

"Choosing the winners gets harder each year and this time we had to have the help of an external judge."

The competition is open to photographers who take images of the natural world across Worcestershire.

The Trust hopes the images in the calendar will encourage people to get outside and appreciate both the countryside and wildlife that Worcestershire has to offer.

Photographs featured in the calendar can be viewed on the charity's Flickr photostream at
