December 3rd- birds from the studio on a very dull, cold day

One of those days when you remember that as we approach the winter solstice days don’t get much darker. With heavy rain bearing cloud throughout it was dull at best with the afternoon darkening rapidly. The maximum temperature was just over 3C.

I spent some time sketching common garden birds. They really do bring cheer at this time of year, especially on a day like today. The feeders were extremely busy; we are very lucky to have a good variety of woodland birds here including several marsh tits. Coal tits have been very numerous this year. The watercolour study sheet shows the most common visitors to the feeder outside my studio.
