Here are all the brilliant photos submitted for last week’s East Devon photo challenge - Birds.

Last week, we tasked our readers to share with us their best photos of birds from anywhere across East Devon and here are all the entries.

These pictures were submitted via iwitness24, our photo-sharing website. Why not join our community of photographers and start sharing your East Devon photos with us? You could see your pictures appearing (in print/online) in our East Devon newspapers - Exmouth Journal, Sidmouth Herald, Midweek Herald and Cranbrook Herald.

More: This week’s iwitness24 challenge is ‘By the Riverside’ - we want to see your beautiful photos of river courses from across East Devon. To join iwitness24 and to take part in our weekly photo challenge, simply go to www.iwitness24.co.uk and upload your images to the East Devon group.
