In the June issue of Bird Watching, we reviewed the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 II EB, and you could win one, worth £750, in our Spring Photo Competition.

Send us your best photographs of British and Irish spring birds – that could be a species in bright, fresh spring plumage, or in a setting that evokes spring, or just a great photo of a bird taken in spring.

To enter, please send up to six jpeg images to:, with ‘SPRING BIRD: Your name” in the subject line. Closing date is 30 June.

We’ll choose a shortlist of 10 to feature in the magazine and on social media, and the overall winner will receive a brand-new Lumix FZ1000 II EB camera.
