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

Finally managed to get a look at the long staying Female Scaup at Attenborough Church Pond. The whitish face patch was quite striking at a distance.
Moving on from Church pond I followed the path round to the (very muddy) Wet Marsh area and stopped to look at the reeds opposite. Loud calling from the trees gave away a male Great Spotted Woodpecker. Another called from the trees behind me. Also seen but not sketched - Cettis Warbler (I think) Water rail (heard) Goosander, Teal, Goldeneye, Wigeon and a very tame Robin which takes food from your hand!
