MORE than 90 people braved the heavy rain for the preview of the British Wildlife Photography Awards exhibition at Moors Valley Country Park.

They were rewarded with some stunning photography and a fascinating talk by New Forest-based award-winning photographer Tony Moss, whose detailed knowledge of the local wildlife, and its habitat, drew huge applause from everyone gathered in the crowded visitor centre.

About 90 stunning images of British wildlife are in the exhibition, which is open until March 8.

The exhibition opens daily and admission is free, but parking charges will apply.
