IF THE FIRST lockdown's weather was known for its endless blue skies and sunny weather, then this one may be remembered for its distinct chill.

While some parts of the country have experienced snowfall, here in Andover we have escaped it thus far.

Instead, we have been braced with freezing temperatures, thick cloud and a touch of frost. And if we are lucky, the odd glimpse of blue sky.

But whatever the weather, you can count on The Advertiser's camera club members to get out and photograph the occasion. And January so far has been no exception.

Our budding snappers have been capturing wildlife in action across Test Valley.

From bird-watching in their back gardens to snapping shots on their daily walks, our members have been abiding to the government's restrictions of leaving home once a day for exercise.

The Advertiser's camera club members take part in monthly challenges, swap photography tips and get the opportunity to see their work in print. The club now has more than 480 members from a variety of backgrounds. Whether you are a total beginner or long-time enthusiast, anyone is welcome. It is easy to join and is free.
