Roger Fry’s picture of a flock of knots flying above the beach at Weston-super-Mare, wins this week’s iwitness24 photo challenge.

Last week we set our readers the task of capturing pictures of birds from anywhere around Weston. Roger Fry’s stunning shot is our favourite and wins him the ‘Photo of the Week’ title.

Iwitness24 is a picture-sharing website, which allows our readers to share their photos and see them appear in print and online across our local newspaper titles.

If you have taken a photo in Weston, which you would like to share with our Mercury readers, then upload it at: www.weston.iwitness24.co.uk.
