All well done, but particularly I like the hummer. Good work!

Finally managed to get around to doing something on the 1st winter drake harlequin that's been up on North Uist. Often stays a bit distant probably something to do with the otters that are regularly on the shore and have been seen going for it.

Looking quite smart for a 1st winter but hopefully it'll stay a bit longer and fully moult in.

cheers, Andrew

Lovely sketch of a cracking bird Andrew, you've done it justice.

My must-see bird (but I think I'll wait til I can see it from the sitting room) - very fine piece this Andrew - really lovely.

Beautiful Harlequin! Like Tim, I would give much to see this one in the wild, and I definately can't expect to see it from my sitting room.
