Here are a final 'Top Twenty' selections, a few favourite pictures (in no particular order) taken during 2011. This includes the top three Shropshire birds - congratulations to the WAXWING struggling to swallow that rose hip with a Lapwing, Dotterel and Hobby three way tie behind.
You will find an voting box to the right, to keep things simple, check the FIVE pictures you like most! (click thumbs to open a larger image) FIVE votes maximum only please! (Only one voter is possible per PC sorry!)
I will let this poll run until December 31st and then YOUR No 1 Picture of the Year will be declared on New Years Day....
Have a fantastic Christmas and here's wishing everyone great birding in 2012!
