Bird Carvings

I am relatively new to carving (about 3 years) and as a newish Bird Carver it's great to see examples appearing in this forum. In the past I have particularly enjoyed Mark Richards birds and have been able to see the real thing at the Festival of Birds at Bakewell. I have attached some examples of my modest efforts. The Swallow and Sparrows won Silver awards in the Novice class at Bakwell 2012 which was very satisfying.
