    Possible hybrid gull, Dublin, 23/11/2013.

    Thanks for that, Lou! It looked distinctly odd compared to the other gulls, so I thought it worth a look.

    Possible hybrid gull, Dublin, 23/11/2013.

    Evening all, I was wondering if this is a possible Herring x Lesser Black-backed Gull, taken in Dublin on 23/11/2013. Main points for me are the mid-grey mantle (almost exactly mid-range between the Herrings and the one LBB present) combined with the pink legs and the single mirror on p10. The...

    Colonel Boris' scruffy old sketchpad.

    Thanks! The kids are ill and wanted me to make them something, so as I was making some small flag patches at the time, they got patches of some of their favourite birds. They're only small at about 1 1/2 by 1 inch, but that sort of thing keeps them happy.

    Thanks, Oivind! Finally got round to finishing the Waxwings and also managed another drawing this evening.

    Pallas's Warbler, Moor Green Lake

    Lovely! As one of the first few people to mis-identify it, it's nice to see a few shots that rub it in...

    Colonel Boris' scruffy old sketchpad.

    Crikey. Finally got a house and moved our stuff in, unpacked and slowly settled in, so back to drawing... The first one is for yet another Tales From The Track - this time about IDing corellas in WA. I tried to scan the original (this being a mobile phone photo) at work and left it in the...

    Steve's paintings

    Love the Great Horned Owl. I saw one before I was into birding when working on Camp Spoilt Weasel in PA years back. We thought it was one of those giant plastic roof owls until it took off...

    One Year On

    I like the elephants especially. Always nice to see a bit of pencil.

    New field studies

    I rather like these big cat drawings. Very fluid.
