Gallery – All Creatures Great & Small

‘Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms’ – George Eliot

From rescue pets to wildlife reclaiming its natural environment, there’s no doubting that creatures of all shapes and sizes have made lockdown a lot more bearable for many of us. Take a look through our gallery and smiles are guaranteed. Images are in no particular order other than to separate the squirrels from the squawkers!

Thank you so much to all the photographers who have introduced us to their friends and familiars; this one has been an absolute pleasure to compile. All images are copyright of the named photographer – do check out more of their work on the links shown.

Our next gallery is planned for April and will look at the changing face of the high street. Submissions open at the end of March – if you have a favourite independent shop, photos from lockdown and busier days in town, or street photography that you’d like us to feature, look out for more details nearer the time.
