I have had another go at a curlew which a birder has said isn't bad as at least he recognised it. It's less of a character than the King of the Cats Curlews which have a cheeky glint in their eye and is actually, near life size. There was another but I am not sure of that one. and maybe the legs need to be longer. I think I may play with it before putting them on my web shop though how on earth am I going to courier them?!
I actually love the Lapwings even if they gave me palpitations on the way to the kiln with their head feathers I need to refine them a little but we shall see I also now think on reflection the tail feathers need to balance more but I was working to approximate sizes and to be honest I still love them a positive step etc.
But my favourites are the Snipes.....
There is a Lapwing and Stonechats along side some Long Tailed Tits on exhibition at the Art Room Gallery in Garstang till May 12th 2015
