EAST AYRSHIRE residents are being encouraged to apply for a competition for the UK’S best wild bird photographer.

Keen photographers are invited to send their best wild bird pictures for the chance to see their work in the 2020 Wild Bird calendar, as well as a chance to win one of 12 Wilko gift cards worth £100.

All you need is a camera, an eye for detail and a flying visit from your favourite wild birds.

The competition will run until March 31, 2019. All photographs should be taken in a garden or outdoor setting and must have been taken by you.
