The Manx Wildlife Trust is currently running a photo competition for their 2022 calendar.

This is my entry for the month of November: a photo I took of a field of poppies just outside Castletown on Sunday, 20 June, 2021. As a volunteer for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, I think it is important to honour the service and sacrifice of those who gave so much for us.
