Although not a true Yorkshireman i am very proud to live in Yorkshire as the people, places and birds are unsurpassed in my eyes. Although increasingly scarce both nationally and locally the Great Grey Shrike is a regular passage migrant and has and does over winter in the county. These are a few ideas i was toying with last year and display. Im beginning to realise that although im may not like my work other people may enjoy it.
This was a biro sketch i did for Yorkshire Birding back in the autumn of 2008. It features the Amur Falcon at Tophill Low and was and still is MY DREAM BIRD to find in the British Isle's (i do apologise in advance if i illustrate to many raptors but they are just awe inspiring, theres nothing better than a raptor coming in off the sea)
