Raptor studies-Wild park Poing

  I spend the whole morning at a private park close to Munich
hoping to get few coloured studies completed. The rainy weather
changed my plans, and managed to get several B & w sketches
sitting under my umbrella...

Fieldsketching trip to Northern Greece-May 2012

 I`m just back from Northern Greece, where I spend a week watching, studying  and sketching
birds. I had a great time as always, I can`t complain, the weather was fine , the expected bird species
to see were there, and finally I`ve been rewarded with  a series of studies done on location .
I saw for the first time in my life Collared pratincoles and enjoyed the song of the Barred warbler in particular, watching them at close quarters...
Most of birds gave me great views and made me considering to plan an other trip at the same time maybe next year...
