Last painting of 2013 is done- Golden Plovers in wet stubble from October on the Stour.   I tried to get something done whilst they were still in summer plumage and roosting in the potato fields in August, but was too slow off the mark.  So here they are in the last few weeks before they disappear (to who knows where) for the winter.

Back-lit sprat loon:

Here's a Red-throated Diver from last week when the light was shining through the top of the waves at Walberswick.  Them winter RT-D's must have one of the most conspicuous eyes in all of birddom.

Buzz club:

Slightly confusing up at Haddiscoe today with a Common Buzzard flashing a bit o' white behind the Roughlegs.

Ghostly roosters

Greenshank painting done.  It's ended up with a bit too much paint blatted on, especially the Curlew.  But hopefully still a reminder of bright autumn days.
