This cock Red Grouse on the North York Moors was ruffling his feathers and preening in the glorious October sunshine. He was surrounded by the tiny colourful leaves of bilberry which was growing amongst the sticks of burnt heather.
The Tree Sparrows are inspecting roost sites around the garden. They fledged two broods from our nest box this year. The adults are now moulted into fresh plumage ready for winter and males are very vocal particularly around potential nest/ roost sites.
Another very fast watercolour sketch of the sky at 7.06pm yesterday.
A quick (3 minute) sketch of sunset on 29th September. I do many postcard sized, fast watercolour sketches, partly for reference, often recording the weather conditions at the time, but also because it is great practise in handling watercolour. The main reason though is because I love to observe the changing sky, particularly towards twilight.
