The Cairngorms Nature Young Presenter for 2017 has been chosen.

The winner is Alex Bayley, 14, from Surrey.

In June, the Cairngorms National Park Authority launched the competition in partnership with the RSPB.

In recent months, 10-16-year-olds across the UK have been submitting short videos on a nature item and telling organisers why they want to present Cairngorms Nature.

Alex’s presentation on foxes beat off competition from seven other finalists and won the national online vote.

He said: “I can’t believe I have won when the other entries were all so good. I can’t wait to go and see the amazing wildlife in the Cairngorms.”
