The results of the the RSPB and The Rialto’s Nature Poetry Competition are in.   The competition has been a great success, with over 3300 poems entered.  The judge, none other than, Simon Armitage, selected four prize winning poems and seven highly commended poems.    David Attwooll’s  poem “Otmoor” was one of those seven.

As the organizers of the competition said “Given that so many poems were received of a very high standard, this really is quite an achievement. Congratulations!”
