"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."

Britains smallest bird. This one sketched as it foraged in the Silver Birch tree in the garden this morning. The first time I've recorded the species in the garden in the 11 years we have lived here.
