Thankyou all. It looks a bit more promising this time.
The Goldfinches in the rain was sold before it got on the wall so it had to be replaced.That gave a chance for the Covey of Grey Partridges

Very best wishes with this- I do like the way pictures gathered together have an added impact.

Beautiful little birds Arthur, a great opportunity that you've made the most of with these wonderful sketches.

lively sketches,

I always wonder when you guys on that side of the pond mention hides, I don't think I've ever seen one here, at any of our bird places, even in the parks....I wonder why.....what are they like?

so does that mean it can be anything, tent building etc. those are really cool in the pic......

I was thinking it was something like the duck hunters use to hide from the ducks so they can shoot them without being seen, which seems a bit unsportman-like to me...if you are going to shoot an unarmed target, at least give it a chance to see you. And I'm not apologizing to any hunters, I know you have your own view, and tho not one I support, I know we have common cause to keep the birds and the environment healthy.

so they do sometimes give themselves up to be sketched! Glad you managed to make the most of them, they're so full of character, I'd love to fill a few pages with them myself.

Lovely gret Arthur, looks like Tim's recent run of charcoal drawings is inspiring indeed!

if this is an accurate representation of what you saw, you were well and truly spoiled! I'd give my eye teeth to be able to have group of beardies perform like that for me - this is going to be an absolute treasure of a pic.

Looking forward to seeing it develop Arthur, and getting more and more envious of your hides. I think Colleen has already asked about this but I'd really like to know more about the difference between American blinds and European hides. I have the impression that there are far more in Europe, or is it just England? And maybe they are better as well?

just the UK - In France good hides are as rare as hen's teeth and the best one round here is Zippy the Renault 5.
