Towards the end of August the local Kingfishers fledged another family. Unfortunately I was a little late and the 2 or 3 juveniles were being driven off by the adults allowing no sketching opportunities. Fortunately, a lot of recently fledged herons and adults have been showing very well on the many fallen branches.
I have also spent a bit of time working on sketches of goshawks and sparrowhawks from the Sligo eagles flying centre. They have one young female gos and 3 sparrowhawks. It is great to see the bulk of the gos and compare it to the slim and tiny sparrowhawks. It would be great to see the differences in flight.
