The winners of this year’s British Wildlife Photography Awards have been announced and the overall prize went to the above photo of a greylag goose strolling along the banks of the Thames in London, entitled The Tourist.

The photographer, Lee Acaster, said: “It was a real privilege to have such a close encounter with a wild bird in the very heart of London. I vividly remember the excitement I felt as she patiently waited for me to get the shot, and I knew immediately this was a once in a lifetime opportunity, I’m just grateful that she didn’t lose interest as quickly as my children do when I’m taking photographs of them”.
