We stayed in Yangkou fishing village. Each day we visited the tidal zone at high tide. We scanned and sketched the roosting flocks.

Grey Plover, Dunlin and Bar-tailed Godwit:





















The whole area is under  threat from constant development. More and more of the tidal zone is reclaimed by building huge seawalls. My friend, Robert Vaughan sketching next to a windmill being constructed:

Wonderful sketches. Do you have any issues with windmills affecting the birds there? I'm in the U.S. near Virginia Beach, and thats always one of the excuses given for not putting windmills on our coast.

Jo napot!
__I think water-color... adds a certain grace to the "artistic" capture of wild life; that is certainly seen here with these birds.
