Journal pages

Nothing terribly exciting, I have been organising to go away for some workshops for a few days so trying to get house work etc done and I just keep getting tired and sit doing scribbles, the Sketchbook challenge this month is branching out and so that is my first one, I may have more of a think about this but this was the first thing I could think of.
The other is one of our little hooded plover that wizz along the beaches on very fast little feet. They are supposed to be endangered, but I see several pairs on the beaches I walk and I dont think you usually ever see more than a pair or family group for quite a long way as they are quite territorial and defend their patch.
Back to finish the ironing, at least the basket is now only about a quater full.

I just love looking at your sketches. The tree I like for its simplicity yet the birds still come and love to nestle on the branches.

I was amazed when I saw my first plover egg it was the loveliest shad of turquoise/green....but unfortunately a big goanna ate it. Our plovers were inland plovers.

I love that bit about the plover whizzing along the beach on fast little feet. Most poetic. Lovely pictures, too.

The journal sketch looks very springy, although I know you are heading into autumn.
