Tree Sparrows

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.

Sunset 29th September

Sunset 29th September- watercolour sketch in sketchbook

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.
