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.

Bar-tailed godwits are long-billed, long-legged wading birds which visit UK shores for the winter. Most usually seen in their grey-brown winter plumage, birds in spring may show their full rich chestnut breeding plumage.           

Wrens are the commonest UK breeding bird and are found across the country in a wide range of habitats - woodland, farmland, heathland, moorland and islands.  A regular visitor to most gardens.
