Each painted piece is carved by hand. A pyrograph tool is then used to give texture to feathers. Finally the piece is carefully painted with acrylic watercolour.

Marsh harriers can be recognised by their long tail and light flight with wings held in a shallow 'V'. They are seen over reedbeds and marshes, as well as farmland near wetlands.  Teals are small dabbling ducks. Males have chestnut coloured heads with broad green eye-patches, a spotted chest, grey flanks and a black edged yellow tail. Females are mottled brown.

Teals are small dabbling ducks. Males have chestnut coloured heads with broad green eye-patches, a spotted chest, grey flanks and a black edged yellow tail. Females are mottled brown. Both show bright green wing patches (speculum) in flight.  In winter birds congregate in low-lying wetlands in the south and west of the UK.
