Drawings, sketches and paintings of wildlife encountered on travels locally and further afield.

Looking carefully among the cattle on the opposite shore of the Trent at Attenborough there were lots of small bird movement, which turned out to be Pied and Yellow Wagtails. Some distance away so quite tricky to draw. As the cows got to their feet and moved off the Yellows kept in little packs, catching insects disturbed beneath hooves. Strange to think that in a few months time they could be catching insects from beneath herds of Zebra and Wildebeest! Further along the Trent pairs of Egyptian geese rested or grazed on the bank, sometimes making a strange hissing warning call as I passed.
