I am always excited to see a predator. On this day, I watched a peregrine recovering height following (I am told by the person who first spotted it) a failed dive onto a curlew.
In a distant tree, through the scope, I watched a roosting buzzard.
I am working on my field technique, capturing the jizz of the bird. This experiment in wash and conti pencil was from memory.
And these sketches were done quickly from photographs on the Birdguides site in an attempt to simulate direct observation, exploring the rapid use of line and wash.
