Overall winner. Nature recovery success: Porlock Marsh in Exmoor national park by Shaun Davey. ‘The marsh is only 25 years old,’ said Davey. ‘It was formed when Exmoor national park authority and the National Trust took the controversial decision to ‘let nature take its course’ when the shingle ridge protecting the area from the sea was breached in a storm in 1996. The marsh is now a haven for wildlife and a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) … The image shows a sunset across the flooded marsh at high tide – the breach is clearly visible beyond the more distant tree.’

Runner-up. Threatened species: Curlew at West Witton in Yorkshire Dales national park by Deborah Clarke.

Runner-up. Extreme weather: Flooding in Derwent Water in Lake District national park by Jon Roberts.

People’s choice, best phone photo winner. Excess carbon emissions: Hope cement works and Hope valley in Peak District national park by Simon Walkden.

Runner-up, best phone photo. Extreme weather: Water shortages at Haweswater in Lake District national park by Tony Watson.

Third place, best phone photo. Extreme weather: Unusually heavy snowfall in the Cleveland Hills in North York Moors national park by Cara Organ.
