"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Peregrines Again

23rd May 2008.
Spent the day checking a couple of Peregrine sites in the south western Yorkshire Dales. Found two pairs feeding young and a pair of Ravens with five fledged young.

This female spent an hour sat on the cliff preening before feeding the young. The bird was sat in deep shade on the cliff, but the watercolour painted on the spot came out a bit pale due to the glare from the sun on the white page.
