Grab your diaries! The popular BBC Winterwatch will be starting up on Tuesday 17th January for two weeks of British wildlife with the Team. Details of what will be on offer here.
The RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch covers the weekend of 27-29th January, and I’m hoping the weather will be kind this time as the last two years have been literal washouts!
I’m going to have a go at doing some sketches of both these. I have a good vantage point from my window of the bird table and feeder, and although I rarely get to watch the Watches live, iPlayer makes it easy to catch up when I feel like a break from my other work.
Meanwhile, I have a large book order to place with my printers, and some stickers from MOO as well. There’s paper to get so I can paint the birds for Greenwich Peninsula, and this time I’m going with Fabriano Artistico 5, which was recommended to me by one of my followers – thank you!
I’m also prepping for the upcoming term at Wilderness Wood and my home-ed art class.
Have you got a busy start to your new year?
