I’m delighted to announce that I am the runner up in the Mayor’s Urban Ecology Photo Competition in the Streetscapes category. The photo I received the award for is a picture I took while out cycling of a cockatoo enjoying a breakfast of nuts and seeds. It was a case of right place, right time, with the birds just sitting by the cycle trail.
I love the way that cycling opens up so many secret places and experiences you wouldn’t have in a car. The competition has been a great awareness raiser of the fantastic wildlife in the local area. While I love getting out into the wilderness, it’s so important to protect our environments close to home.
I was presented with the award at a ceremony at the Clocktower Centre, where you can see the winning and runner up images on display.
