Garden and Urban Birds
Gold winner: European Robin in a potato field in Ekklisoxori, northwest Greece, by Nikos Bukas, Greece.
Silver winner: Bar-tailed Godwit, Gijón, Spain, by Mario Suarez Porras, Spain.
“This beach in the city of Gijón, in northern Spain, is a good place for the shorebird migration, and the birds always give you good opportunities,” he says. “That evening I was about to go home when I noticed the city street lamps at the back came on. I tried to look for some ‘flares’ to show the bird in an urbanized context.”
