Tell us about a great place in the UK to see migrating birds – you could win a holiday voucher

Spring is a great time for viewing birdlife in the UK as the breeding season gets under way and summer visitors reach these shores. You may have witnessed the return of swallows, swifts and martins to their breeding sites from Africa, or heard the calls of newly arrived cuckoos. Perhaps you’ve seen an exhausted small bird, maybe a willow warbler, make it to our coasts after its arduous flight over the sea. And for sheer spectacle little can beat the sight of an osprey, just back from, say, Senegal or Ghana, diving for fish in a British lake.

Tell us about great places in the UK to see migrant birds this spring, whether it’s in a nature reserve, on a country walk, in your garden, or on a city street.

Photographs are welcome as long as you hold the copyright – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition. Please do not send photographs taken from the internet.
