The theme for this month is 'Birds in Flight/Flock of Birds'.

The theme from February following the last site crash has been amalgamated into this months posted theme - still only one entry per member though!

The theme is further defined as being a photograph of a bird/birds in flight whether singly or as a flock.

Hi Ian;

I was trying to move my "Arctic Tern with young" to the competition, but did not succeed. Can you help me out if you think this picture qualifies?


Hi Ian
Similar request as Gauker. I have tried to move my pic "I'll be off then" (sulphur-crested cockatoo) from my gallery to the monthly comp. Obviously I don't have the right touch, can you help?
Cheers SalB


Hi Ian

I'm sure you're beginning to get fed up with this now but, any chance you could move my 'kestrel in flight' photo into the competition?
