North Devon is simply one of the most beautiful spots in the country and we are asking our readers to share with us their treasured pictures of the region from villages, towns and beaches and everywhere in between.

Each week we compile an online gallery of some of your brilliant snaps of the area.

Visiting Eggesford is another favourite of mine, especially the Garden Centre. Lots of nature around and some wonderful views.

The UK is host to many striking butterfly and moth species. Sadly most have a short life span but whilst fluttering about they bring such amazing colour and form an important part of the ecosystem. There is nothing finer than observing them supping up the delights of nectar-rich flowers with their curious, scrolling, proboscis. I was so excited when I saw my first Green Hairsteak (but I must confess that was in Cornwall). It is never too late to start looking for these wanderlust beauties.

Visiting Saunton Sands brings great memories of so many good things. Beautiful views, a lovely long walk, wind in your hair to blow the cobwebs away and a real 'feel good factor'. Steeped in movie and video history. Many of my friends were extras in the filming for Pink Floyd's 'The Wall', sadly some are no longer with us. One of the finest beaches in North Devon. It has been my saving grace many times. Picture: Bridget Rendall Visiting Saunton Sands brings great memories of so many good things.

Arriving at this beautiful place on a January morning 7am was the best. After all the visitors have left and nature reclaims its habitat it is a sight to behold. The Robins hopping around your feet with great expectations of a few crumbs, the amazing views, colours and the sound of rushing waters is enough to lift anyone's spirit.

I wondered why the robins were so tame at Watersmeet, then it suddenly occurred to me they are used to nibbling on leftovers from visitors to the cafe, when the cafe closes for the season, as was the case on this day, the robins see humans and think ahh food. Therefore, they are very friendly but with the hope you can supply them with some nibbles. They look well fed don't they!
