Rebecca said: "Nature has always been close to my heart, and from a young age I have had a great appreciation for Britain's wildlife. To have the opportunity to visit Scotland and spend a week in the Cairngorms National Park was truly magical, and an experience I shall never forget.

"All three images represent the variety of beautiful woodland wildlife that I was able to see during my time in Scotland. Each animal captivated my wonder and awe, and it was wonderful to experience and witness them all in their natural environment.

"It is a huge honour to be selected as the overall winner in the Student Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year 2017. I am very thrilled, humbled, and thankful to be recognised by such an experienced and well renowned panel of judges. It really is a fantastic way to finish my final year at Falmouth University."

Judge Niall Irvine said: "The winning portfolio is very well composed and has a good balance of the wildlife and the woodland habitat through the three images."
