Redbridge, Naturally

This year’s Redbridge wildlife photography competition runs from 1st July to 30th September. It’s free to enter and all entries will be displayed at the James Leal Centre from the closing date until 8th October. The winners in each category will be decided by a public vote.

But to take a photograph of wildlife you have to get out there. So why not get in with our Ranger team for one of their guided walks, like:

Saturday 23 July
Guided river walk
Walk and explore the River Roding and see what wildlife you can spot along the way. Families are welcome, but not suitable for pushchairs.
Meet at: James Leal Centre, Ray Park, Woodford Green, IG8 7JQ

And of course there is also the under-16 category, who will be kicking their heels during the summer school break and wondering what to do and what could take their minds of texting and onto the photo feature on their mobile phones. That is, if they are not re-programming their grandad’s video recorder or teaching him how to use a Wii.
