Field-sketches and descriptions

Someone commented, in the thread about the millions of the Oxford photo's of Northern Oriole that it would be nice to see some sketches and field notes instead.

I haven't seen the bird, but I think its a great idea.. so here is a thread to show field notes in.... to start my garden Pallas's Warbler :)

So lets see other people's...

That's a very Bill Oddie-like sketch Jane!
Excellent notes.

That's cheating! They're not field notes unless you've suffered to make them. Sitting in your dining room, presumably with a nice single malt to hand, is NOT suffering for your art.

I would be far, far too embarrassed to post any and having seen the standard here I feel completely justified. Your sketches look like birds! Mine are amorphous shapes, possibly vaguely resembling parts of a bird. My Dartford Warbler looks like a Primary school Christmas Robin.

Jane and Chris,
Great sketches and field notes. I'll try and scan one of mine this PM but be forewarned, mine are not as good!

Hi Jane,
Too embarrassed to scan mine,not that they're so much worse than what I've seen,but they're not great!
Still,might yet scan some of my better efforts,such as the 'controversial' AGP,Hume's etc

As a lazy, impetuous and half-hearted birdwatcher field sketches have never really appealed to me ! Don't think I've ever done one and I can't see it happening in the future.

Resembles a bird? I think it resembles a 'lesser goldie' - nice one Jane.
