Bird Watching & Drawing

James McGowan


At the start of self isolation, my sister-in-law Bernice Anderson, who is an artist and Illustrator, run an art shop on Facebook for any one to take part. This was started using birds names from the alphabet starting from A. My wife and myself took part in this and both of us having no experience whatsoever really enjoyed taking part. We will never make a living from our drawings but you definitely could see an improvement after it was finished, fun had by all.


Mount Stewart is a great place to get good bird pics. I take the camera out with me at all times never know what you see. Good luck with the robin. At the moment we make do with what we have, here are some birds having a good time in our garden
