Snap-happy Evening Post readers have been clicking away on their cameras to capture some of the county’s wildlife and have conjured up an eclectic mix.

Sophie Baghaw photographed a common blue butterfly, smooth newt and mallard duckling. She said: “I am 16 years old and love wildlife photography. I’ve always been into the outdoors and everything that goes with it. Although recently I have become a birder. This led to me snapping pictures all the time. I take thousands a day and end up having to sort through them all.

“It allows my family to see what is beyond their doorstep and gives me the chance to look in more detail at them as well.”

Pauline Beattie was delighted to see a blue tit preparing for nesting in her Preston garden while David Traynor from Preston said: “ I was very lucky to get this picture of a stoat while out and about in the countryside, it just seemed to stop for a couple of seconds and pose for the camera. I could not believe it.”

Dave Ryan from Ribbleton took some of a mallard, duck and curlew from around Red Scar and Terry Casey took the stunning picture of a cormorant catching it’s lunch in Avenham Park.
