Very nice indeed, wagtails do lend themselves to black and white. One of my favourite birds too!

What a transformation ,really like these multiple posture/movement studies.

Would like to see more of this approach in guide books,the true mannerisms of birds are very difficult to portray in just a single picture.

Little auks on a lawn - now that is a good record - and I love the lower right hand bird, wing raising. It's really well done, Arthur.

Love those brents Arthur..

In my mind Brent geese flocks will always be synonymous with my first visit to cley.

Looking forward to seeing them finished-in your own good time of course
