    My painting for today.
    A very quick five minute sketch in SketchClub. I had no preconceived idea or picture...my finger did the drawing itself ...

    Now, all I want to do is sleep....good night...

    @Brokenbill, what do you usually have for breakfast? If that's not a silly question.

    Hi guys,
    I love raptors;
    A male Sparrow Hawk came into the garden this pm after songbirds, but it wasn't successful. A Great Spotted Woodpecker male on a nut feeder froze motionless for 20 mins after the hawk had gone.
    Sparrow Hawks are not good killers, they can sometimes start eating their catches whilst their prey are still alive and they don't die quickly.
    Now the Goshawk is a fearless predator and when it strikes, its prey dies mercifully more quickly. We had a male Gosawk take a Collard Dove in the garden a year ago and it swiftly dispatched it, it was dead almost by the time it grounded. Hated by gamekeepers, but loved by falconers, who no doubt are responsible for its reintroduction to the uk.
    The male being much smaller than the female has to be careful near her when they have young, the females have been known to kill their male partners.
    Truly the female of the species is more dangerous than the male!
    We have a number of buzzards over the house at times, but a Red Kite is red letter day in Cumbria. However, someone the other day sent some dash cam footage to the bird club of a kite crossing a fell road in front of his car.
    Ospreys self introduced themselves c.30 years ago and have bred mainly successfully for some years just a few miles away at Bassenthwaite.

    I cannot imagine a life without birds and the countryside being an abiding and engrossing interest.
    D.

    Lovely. It immediately made me think of the sad Song of The Moon by Dvorak:
    Silvery moon in the velvet sky
    Your light shines far in the heavens
    Over the world, wandering
    Gazing in human dwellings

    Good morning everyone from a wonderfully quiet dawn in the dark and dangerous north

    The wonder wheel of Heck sausages and a few eggs on some home made FibreFlour bread came in at 5.1 this am

    Bit of a miserably, dreary and wet day yesterday but did manage a quick dash round the park between downpours early on.
    New sofa arriving today so it was the dance of the existing sofas in order to make room. The old steel frame futon in the un-named room that we have had for well over 25 years is going, now awaiting collection by a local charity shop in the garage. Mrs Miggins then moved a sofa from the sitting room into the space left by the old futon - think cantilever or some strange A level maths problem - always interesting to see.

    Lots of brush stroke practice yesterday while the rain came down. Eventually some bamboo on backing paper and a wee play with some faint memories of a visit to The Cherokee Nation, Oklahoma many years ago.

    Good Morning and 5.9 for me today.

    Have to get rid of the wood from my kitchen and hall floor today. My cousin is taking it to France to burn in his Wood Stove so VW camper being put to other uses to deliver it to him, not in France but Shropshire. We can't burn it as we are in a smokeless zone and can only burn Kiln Dried Wood on our Defra Approved Wood Stove.

    Keep those wheels in motion, as some good old song says. Keep safe.

    @gennepher after such a hard day yesterday you still managed to stick to your 2020 resolution and produce a piece of fine art. To my minds eye a rising moon and setting sun in conjunction over a silvery sea.

    I really like your Bamboo drawings, practice is certainly making you perfect. Like the faint memory composition although not sure if head gear or landscape inspired.

    Careful not to spill your Koffe on that new sofa. :)

    Mr Johnson will tell the Conservative Party's virtual conference he believes that in 10 years' time, "offshore wind will be powering every home in the country".

    Hold on to your hats it's suddenly going to get a lot draughtier. :joyful:
