There’s a distinct animal theme to this week’s Herald Camera Club.

From feathered friends frolicking on the Mere in Ellesmere, to four-legged friends helping their humans get on with some garden preparation, there really is a paw-fect mix.

With so much happening in the natural world you could ask if spring is on the way?!
