On the first day of Christmas....

What could be better at Christmas than a festive photo competition with a big money prize.The entrants must exactly depict the first seven days from the carol 12 Days of Christmas - pictures taken on the actual day and in Northern Ireland. Here are what will be the winning entries, we are offering a £500 prize for whoever accomplishes it (or nearest equivalent):

-a Partridge in a pear tree
-2 Turtle Doves
-3 French hens
-4 colly birds (apparently Blackbirds)
-5 Goo..ldcrests (cheated a bit here)
-6 geese-a-laying
-7 swans-a-swimming

..........after 7 it kinda loses the bird theme.

You'll have to be on the ball to catch up with Allen Gillespie though - he's already off the mark with this entry....

'On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me, a Waxwing in a ce-me-ter-ee' - Belfast Cemetery to be precise.
