Every day will see the nights getting lighter, bringing some great photo opportunities.

Daniel Brown saw some amazing black swans while Rachel Parker photographed a highland cow in Chilbolton.

Michael Habicht captured some aerial drone footage of Winchester Cathedral and Sheila Anne Williams captured a clear blue sky next to the King Alfred statue.
