The greatest thing about autumn? All the beautiful colours! It's also a very exciting time to see lots of animals out and about making their winter preparations. For our ‘Underground Life’ issue, we encouraged you to go outside and get snapping with a camera. We’ve got to admit, our readers have a great eye for photography. Look at these super shots!

Congratulations to our 5 winners:

Isaac, age 8, Leigh on Sea - Jay

Lara, age 9, Maybole - Peacock Butterfly

Sage, age 5, London - Twisted Tree

Tiarnan, age 7, Seascale - Water of a Swan's back

Eben, age 6, St. Bees - Bright Berries

What you've won

Congratulations you've all won the new, exclusive RSPB version of Monopoly.

It’s the traditional game you know and love, but instead of buying Mayfair or Old Kent Road, you work your way around the board, collecting stunning bird sites and visiting habitats such as woodlands, wetlands and coastal regions. You also add bird watching hides and visitor centres as you go. Ideal for two to six players, ages eight and up.
RRP £34.99

Available at: rspbshop.co.uk


And a big well done to our runners-up for their wonderful photos, too!
