THIS stunning image of a lone bird flying over the sea has proved an award-winner.

The picture, which shows an Arctic Tern with a fish in its beak, was taken by keen photographer Cathryn Mantovani.

The image, called Evening Catch, was named the overall winner in the Seaford Photographic Society’s annual competition with the theme of ‘nature’.

Ms Mantovani, a keen photographer, took the photo when she was in the Farne Islands in Northumberland last June.
