The Joint Nature Conservation Committee.. ...... use one of my images

I was asked in November if I would allow JNCC a government adviser to use one of my images to illustrate a forthcoming newsletter.


JNCC is a statutory adviser to UK Government and devolved administrations.

Sandwich Tern
(Sterna sandvicensis)


I was delighted and today I received an email of the said newsletter...

...with an acknowledgement for my image.

A link below to the newsletter if you want to read it... I haven't as yet.

when I see that word 'nature' I'm all ears (and eyes). Well done Andrew; what a buzz! It is indeed a fabulous pic. Do you ever print your photos, or just store them on your computer generally? Often wonder if others go beyond ..

Congrats--magnificent photograph, and I say this as someone who has tried and failed on several occasions, to get a good photo of a tern in flight (let alone with a fish).
