It doesn’t matter how cold it gets—even the sudden winter snap this week hasn’t deterred our feathered friends taking a dip in the water in east London. This Wagtail was snapped dipping its toes in running water at Canary Wharf.
It is one of several pictures taken by keen snapper Christopher Andreou for this year’s Canary Wharf photography competition.
He has also entered another snapshot, a wagtail this time thinking about taking a dip in the business district.
They are among 18 images that have been shortlisted and are being displayed in public at Adam’s Plaza footbridge by Crossrail Place.
The judges chose them for originality, composition and extent to which they provide compelling examples of biodiversity at Canary Wharf.
