It’s the end of June and also the end of work for Ely Cathedral’s stay-at-home mum as the resident baby Peregrine Falcons have fledged their nest.  

We’ve hand-picked some of our favourites from submissions via email and our official Instagram through direct message and our hashtag #ElyStandardPhotos.  

It seems this week is animal-themed with more than half of entries featuring an animal, from a flying barn owl to a chilled-out cow eating buttercups 

Each week we select some of your pictures to show off to our readers both in our newspaper, on our website and of course across our social media.  

If you didn’t make the page this week, be sure to keep bombarding us with your best snaps to be in with a chance of having your work displayed.
