Spring has just about arrived in Oxfordshire and to capture it in all its beauty the Oxford Mail Camera Club have been snapping pictures for the theme ‘new beginnings’.

Spectacularly cute snaps of lambs, chicks and small birds have been sent in as well as some beautiful pictures of sunrises.

This week’s competition winner is Eric Denton with his lovely picture of a very trusting Blue Tit in his garden.

He said the picture is of a young Blue Tit that got stuck in his garden which he helped find its way out.

The image shows the bird sat in a hand being helped back over the garden fence.

Next week’s theme is ‘springtime’ so keep sending in your spring pictures.

Post your entries to the Oxford Mail Facebook page to enter and your picture could be featured in the paper.

Happy Snapping!
