ENTER our Cockney Sparrow Wildlife Photography Competition for East London Advertiser readers who take the best pictures of East End wildlife.
In our competition, run in association with Photography Monthly magazine, we are giving you a chance to win some great prizes as you to keep your eyes peeled for any animals you spot around the East End.
Despite being an urban jungle, Tower Hamlets' parks and gardens are full of garden birds, water fowl, small mammals, insects and even the fastest animal on earth, the peregrine falcon.
We have some fantastic prizes to give away to talented snappers who can put the East End's wildlife in the frame.
The winner of the adult category will receive a Vanguard professional-standard photographer's backpack worth more than �100.
The Vanguard Uprise 45 Bag is suitable to carry a digital SLR camera with an attached lens as well as two additional lenses, a flash gun and accessories as well as all you need for a day out in the open.
