Okay so its nearly August but my mind is in March as I gather together my sketches for the March book. I love the simplicity of pencil sketches.
The distinctive shape of cormorants – wonderful birds to sketch.
Teal in flight – there will be more of these, I can’t resist a teal at full pelt!
Then there is the Wheatear a spring visitor all the way from central Africa.
It has quite an upright stance with a bandit face mask, grey back, black wings and tail, a white rump and a reddish flourish under its beak.
It perched just a stone’s throw from the redshank, not birds you would expect to see together – except on a salt marsh.
