good to see you back with us, the woodpigeon is a superb study of an anxious moment. the goldies look as though they'll be a cracking piece of work.

Love these little shelducklings Arthur, they're just so cute! And as for the goldies, they're gonna be outstanding!

Thoroughly 'charming' Arthur - love the amount of space you've left for the birds to move into and your rendering of the weather is excellent. Yet another very fine piece of work.

This is a great contrasty piece - a 'before the storm' sort of mood. The goldies seem to dance around the grasses.

Gorgeous Arthur, this is a lovely piece of observation. It's weird that goldies seem to favour feeding in the rain. Almost every time we get a light rain the niger feeder in my garden will have 1 or 2 pairs of them, and I seem to see them feeding more often in the rain when I'm out and about.
