The Wonder of Birds

I don’t watch a lot of TV (a waste of valuable reading time!) but have been enjoying Springwatch this year. It has inspired me to dig out The Weetabix Wonder Book of Birds and have a go at drawing some of the stars of the show for my latest index cards. Bitterns, you are doing it for me :-)

    I love birds. They are much to teach us.

  2. Bitterns are cool. I love the way they point straight up and so pleased that their numbers are slowly increasing at last.

    Using ICADs for bird-drawing practice…brilliant! I have a post coming up about an amazing little nest outside my front door that has been MUCH better for watching than anything on TV! Perhaps I should be using it for drawing inspiration!

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
