With miles of unspoilt coastline, stunning countryside and more castles than you can shake a stick at, there’s no shortage of subject matter for our army of amateur photographers.

So it makes a pleasant change to see wildlife take centre stage in the popularity stakes.

Every day at, we share your images of the county under the banner, View of Northumberland.

Then each week in the Gazette, we feature the four which received the most likes the previous week.
