Herring Gull in Wave © Steve Young, courtesy of the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2010.
Steve Young has won the British Wildlife Photography title for his photograph of a herring gull, which, the judges say, was a "unique and striking image. One that captures perfectly the power, chaos and intensity of the ocean," according to Greg Armfield of the WWF.
Young wins a £5000 cash prize, while Adam Hawtin, a 14-year-old photographer, won a £500 cash prize and the Young British Wildlife Photographer title. He won for his picture of a Blue Leaf-beetle.
