This week's photo of the week is picked by our wonderful volunteer Maddy Smith. Look out for more from Maddy in weeks to come.

When we think of a bird’s-eye view, this isn’t exactly what springs to mind!

This handsome chap was snapped while taking a breather from pecking away at his sunflower heart snack. A British garden staple, these charismatic little birds are commonly found across the UK. Thanks to Vince Hawthorn for capturing this unique photo of a great tit taking a sneak peek at his admirer from a branch in his own garden, snapped recently near Horsham. He’s a little camera-shy by the look of things!
