Hello Again and Thanks ever so much for bearing with me. Being back on Fair Isle is AMAZING! But the only downside is finding the time to turn my head away from STUNNING birds, scenery and Landscapes and turning it towards a computer screen to update my blog. I promise i will try to update it with a couple of pieces weekly from now on so please stick with me and thank you once again for the endless words of encouragement.
The following three pieces of work are illustrations i did for the recently published Spurn Wildlife 2009 that can be found on the Spurn bird Observatory website (www.spurnbirdobservatory.co.uk) and is a lovely looking journal in its entirety.
I have only just posted them as the report has just this minute be made public. They depict a brood of Sparrowhawk chicks in the Crown & Anchor Car Park (the 1st successful breeding by this species), Barnacle Geese migrating at Sea, Bullfinches feeding on Nettle Seeds in the Autumn and Twite feeding on the shore just of the Lighthouse. I hope you like them as much as i enjoyed illustrating them, although the Sparrohawk nest was pain staking it was brilliant fun to do.
Thank Once Again
