Another finished project that was started earlier this year for Exmoor NP, an illustration showing the various habitats from the coast to the high moors. A great job to get, and one that allowed me to visit this lovely corner of England.


The heathland management interpretation board I illustrated for BBOWT is now in place on Crookham and Greenham Commons. This was a particularly pleasing job as this was an area I birded as a teenager, never thinking there would be nesting Dartford Warbler and Woodlark, you had to go to the New Forest for those.

Another glorious sunset at Alresford Creek after an early wet and miserable day. The tide was just dropping and the waders and Teal were eagerly feeding on the newly exposed mud.

Went in search of the Rough-legged Buzzard at Orford Ness, had good, but rather distant views of this impressive bird of prey. Whilst there I was intrigued by the complex of aerials and old building,(exBBC transmitter), in this wild open landscape, meanwhile a flock of Brent Geese, newly in from their arctic breeding grounds, fed unconcerned amongst the saltmarsh.

The panel for the education room at the Great Fen Project are now in place, and I must say thay look good. Can't wait to do some more.

Lovely dramatic late afternoon light down at the creek. A very high tide kept up by blustery winds meant the waders were very keen to start feeding as water receded. Teal, Knot and Dunlin, also Redshank and a good number of Bar-tailed Godwits.
