    Yes, a bluetit again, but I am very fond of them, and as I'm in the throes of designing a painting course in gouache I needed to find a first subject that would be relatively straightforward to build, show off the medium, and make a striking image.....Bingo , quite a reasonable result! Photo...

    Thank you very much! I watch birds constantly, and keep files of copyright free references which I find inspiring - so I just need a quick flick through to find one to suit my mood!

    “Quartering the Field” (Tyto alba)

    How very nice of you to say so, Jos- I’m very fond of this little gouache study myself. It must have been sheer excitement at finishing it that led to the over- hasty typo! I now enjoy the image every day after uploading it as a wallpaper on my computer ! Thank you again for your trouble.

    Feeder attracting single species

    We didn't get finches at all until we introduced a special Niger seed feeder with a bright yellow base. This, together with renewing the seed supply every month has brought the goldfinches, and with these expanding the range of bird species we have occasional chaffinches and greenfinches too!
