The winner of this week’s See It, Snap It, Send It, is Amy Vigrass of New Path, Fordham for her snap of two Egyptian geese flying over Lakenheath Fen. “They almost look like they are having a conversation,” said Amy. If you have a photograph you think could be a winner of the See It, Snap It, Send It feature, email it to email@example.com - pictures should be between 1mb and 2mb in size - or you can submit a print, by sending it through the post, to See It, Snap It, Send It, Newmarket Journal, Rookery House, The Guineas, Newmarket, Suffolk CB8 8SY.
