A STRIKING image of a long-tailed tit taken by 11-year-old Molly Armiger has made her winner of the RSPCA’s Young Photographer of the Year.

Molly’s photograph of the cheeky garden bird peering through her bedroom window won over the judges who handed her the top accolade at the awards ceremony at the Tower of London on Friday.

The long-tailed tit had built a nest in Molly’s garden at her home in Suffolk.

RSPCA chief photographer Andrew Forsyth, one of the judges, said: “Molly’s spontaneous snapshot packs a powerful punch, beating off some serious competition to be the overall winner.

“Here is a real relationship between photographer and subject, conveying a rare and intimate moment with a creature quite literally very close to home.”

Molly was presented with her trophy and an Olympus camera and equipment by former BBC Blue Peter presenter Matt Baker. She has also been promised an exclusive photoshoot with the RSPCA.
