A splash of colour is always a welcome on sight on cold winter days and two of the pictures featured on this pages certainly provide that.

As well as the beautiful bright yellow and green birds, our latest selection of 'wildlife in winter' photos includes a curious Muntjac Deer paying a visit to one of our talented photographer's gardens.

The Watford Observer Camera Club is a Facebook-based group.

It is open to all photographers, from those who snap pictures on their phones to professionals who capture perfect shots with specialist equipment.

Every four weeks usually, members of the camera club are set a new challenge, a theme is selected and then the work starts for our talented photographers.

Search for Watford Observer Camera Club on Facebook. Ask to join the group and we’ll accept you.
