More local birding

Some sketches from Lynford and Lakenheath from last Sunday...

More time with the Dipper

Another go at painting the Dipper - I did the picture below and another one (too big for the scanner), both of which are slightly unfinished.  I'll have to put some time in and add some finishing touches to them.

North Norfolk, 9th January

A selection of pics from North Norfolk including Titchwell.  A bitterly cold northerly breeze, although once the sun shone it wasn't too bad.  The Golden Plovers at Titchwell at dusk were superb - worthy of more time and more painting.

Thetford, Jan 2013

Spent a recent Sunday out painting the Black-bellied Dipper again, and also a flock of rather mobile Waxwings at dusk on this foggy day.

Christmas and New Year 2013

Christmas and the New Year 2013 saw more Waxwings around Thetford (two different groups were present): 35 on Christmas Day and then a flock of 20 in January 2013.

Hornemann's Arctic Redpoll in Suffolk

Some pics of the Hornemann's Arctic Redpoll at Aldeborough in late Nov/ early Dec 2012...
Bitterly cold there, although it must have been pleasantly warm for this bird compared to Greenland.
