"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."

Goldfinch and Lesser Redpoll. Pen and Ink and Pencil.

Lesser Redpoll. Pencil.

Woke up this morning to a hard frost and a mixed flock of Lesser Redpoll and Goldfinches in the Silver Birch tree outside the kitchen window. They didn't stay long and soon moved off although a couple of Goldfinches hung around the garden all day.
