*EBwS reserve the right to use submitted entries in the Essex Birding journal and to advertise future competitions - credit will be given to the photographer who retains copyright. Votes can be cast via Twitter, Facebook and email: all votes are counted and the top two photos at the quarter and semi-final stages progress.
