Some Bird Sketches

Grey heron sketched at Chiswick House and Gardens. Grey herons tend to stand still so it's a good subject to draw - was the thought I had, but once I started, the bird kept on twisting and turning its head and just wouldn't sit still!!


Canada geese and coots

These are the two species that are very common in the pond of this garden. There is a more exotic looking species, the Egyptian goose, but I couldn't see them near enough to draw. I should remember to bring my binoculars next time.
