With my exhibition at Theatr Clwyd, Mold, North Wales, getting ever closer, I’ve been hard at work in the studio for the last couple of months, with just a short break for Christmas!
I’m trying to capture the story of the Little Terns – tiny terns who over-winter in West Africa then migrate northwards. Quite a few of them come to the reserve at Gronant, near Prestatyn, where they are protected as well as they can be by ever-vigilant wardens.
Little Terns are incredible aerial acrobats, who only really come to land to mate and nest. Their courtship flights are amazing! I literally have photos of them flying upside down!
Took a couple of hours off yesterday to take down my puffin picture from exhibition in the Oriel Mostyn Llandudno.
