Final Voting Page – 12 Birds of Christmas

And the Winner is … 

Common Crane - Paul Ash

Paul Ash took this cracking action shot of a Common Crane interacting with a Common Crow back on the 21st September at the north end of Helston Loe Pool. With 12 outright first place votes and 52 points from our (slightly convoluted) voting system this was a clear winner.

Second and third was a closely run thing, but Steve Rogers’ Alpine Swift taking it from Kevin Bowers’ Pied Wagtail family portrait in the end. The Alpine Swift took 9 first place votes, with the Pied Wagtail taking 7; both taking 36 points overall.

Click on any image, then the right hand side ‘slideshow’ to view the slideshow, or scroll through manually. View all, and choose your favourite 3 images, and which you would place in first, second and third place. Then vote on the 3 polls below;

1. My First Vote

2. My Second Vote

3. My Third Vote

We will have a weighting system in place –  the votes in the First Place Poll gets 3 Points, Second Place Poll 2 Points, and Third Place Poll gets 1 Point. We will then add up all the votes/points – and the winner is the one with the most points!

To be fair, please do choose 3 different pics.

Hope that is perfectly clear, if it isn’t just go ahead and pick 3 anyway.

(And remember how you voted, to compare to the final result, if you so wish.)
