We are delighted to announce a new regional magazine called Walks and wildlife that maybe of interest to photographers and walkers in Lancashire.

Austin Thomas says “This is not only my first Front Cover of the year, it is also the magazines first EVER Front Cover.  Although I have lived in this region for over forty years, I still find myself visiting the same old favourite locations week after week. I am certainly looking forward to reading about new walks and locations that I have overlooked in the past.

The first edition of Lancashire Walks and Wildlife will be on the newsstands in March 2013. This brand new magazine is looking to encourage people to get the most from their region’s countryside and hopefully encourage photographers to explore new areas of interest.

The publication will showcase countryside walks and explore local wildlife, while also offering advice, reviews and competitions.

Lancashire Walks and Wildlife can be found on the Walks and Wildlife website

Here is the Front Cover featuring one of Lancashires Little Owls photographed by Austin Thomas…
