This is the time to look for my favourite bird, the Firecrest! I've visited a small schrubby hill close to my home where I regularly see this species. I was lucky to find a pair, and could make a few sketches (it was not easy):














I'm totally satisfied with the drawing below. I think I could catch the bird's character quite well.













This Firecrest illustration was done 2 years ago, from photographs. I'm not so satisfied with it now, I find the above drawing (which was done from a restless modell) more Firecrest-ish.

I've been sketching with my friend at a fishpond system not far from my home. We haven't been very producting, I can show only a few pages of Ruff, Black-tailed Godwit and Lapwing:


























I've introduced our smaller Owls in the new, spring issue of Madártávlat (magazine of BirdLife Hungary).
