THIS week’s gallery of fantastic photos switches the focus back to our feathered friends.

Luckily, many birds are easier to spot at this time of year, with fewer leaves on the trees as we move into autumn.

For some there is the added attraction of bountiful bunches of berries to feast on, although as Alan Howard’s photo here shows, fresh fish will always be the firm favourite among little egrets.

The Mid Essex Camera Club is the perfect way for budding photographers to share their images both in print and online.

Happy snapping!
