The lapwings are beautiful. It's a sight I'm really longing for here in the cold north.

Thanks, Oivind!

Finally got round to finishing the Waxwings and also managed another drawing this evening.

Thanks!

The kids are ill and wanted me to make them something, so as I was making some small flag patches at the time, they got patches of some of their favourite birds. They're only small at about 1 1/2 by 1 inch, but that sort of thing keeps them happy.

Great work on all - especially like the flying Oystercatchers!
