A FLYAWAY success should be on the cards as the world’s best images of nature go on show at Oxford’s Museum of Natural History for the first time in more than a decade.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition was last shown at the museum in 2003.

This year’s show will run until September 22 at the Parks Road museum.

Museum administrator Wendy Shepherd said: “It’s an inspiring exhibition – the detail is incredible, with every picture telling a different story.”

To mark the arrival of the exhibition, the museum is hosting its own wildlife photography competition.

The Summer Swifts contest will feature photographs of the swifts that are common in the county and in the museum tower.

The winning image will go one show.
