I am not sure if one should have favourites among wild creatures but I always enjoy seeing teal, they are such attractive little ducks. These 2 teal, duck and drake were resting at the edge of the water below the castle at Laugharne. This is always a reliable place to see teal in the winter as is the estuary further down; although they are more jumpy and difficult to sketch away from the relative safety closer to the castle.


 I finished this painting of a kingfisher yesterday, which is destined for The Harbour Lights Gallery later this month.
