I was lucky enough to win a category in the Suffolk Wildlife trust’s annual photographic competition. Not only did I win a bottle of Presecco but the winning photo’s were displayed at the Lackford lakes visitor centre. I hadn’t been to this nature reserve before so I thought this was an ideal opportunity to visit Lackford Lakes, get some much needed exercise after the excesses of Christmas and see my photo on display.

My photograph was winner in the ‘Hidden Suffolk’ category. It’s called ‘Protective Mother’ and shows a Nursery Web spider protecting her egg sac.

Lackford Lakes is a great reserve to visit, there are several well placed hides dotted around the lakes.

It only took a hour to drive to Lackford lakes from my home so I’ll definately be going back later in the year.
