Here are a few more rarities, the last of this batch. Green-winged teal, glossy ibis and a couple of first-winter penduline tits...
There's a very high success rate in this series- seems like you've found a way of doing that really suits.

The teal and reeds seems particularly strong. Very simple but a strong design.

Blew the cobwebs off some colours this evening and realised after a few minutes that a) they're more enjoyable than I remember and b) I really need to see more Firecrests...

You are really going somewhere with this stuff. These last two (like their predecessors) have that bit of extra about them- the shape of the leaf on the F'crest, bit of curve to give character to the G Woodpecker bill.

Ed says it well. Simple but still lively and full of character.

That Firecrest is just.. smooth. 'Straight to the point', the colours transition really well. Keep going at the watercolour, it seems to be your match!

Nice Green Woodie. Reminds of John Busby's stuff.
