Sedge warblers (Acrocephalus schoenobaenuss) migrate from sub-Saharan Africa every spring to nest and breed in the reed beds of Europe. We saw this one in mid May 2020, during lockdown, on a walk by the river Thames Between Pinkhill and Farmoor in Oxfordshire. He perched up high and sang his heart out in an effort to tempt a female sedgie to breed with him. They make lovely nests, firmly woven into the reeds. But they have to be careful, cuckoos make the same migration and watch the warblers carefully in order to parasitise their nests.
I spotted a big brown hare in a field margin just outside our village. I'd gone out to admire the hawthorn blossom and cow parsley in the verges, but this lovely creature made my day!

When you visit the University of Oxford’s Natural History Museum its a job to know where to look - at the marvellous exhibits? Or at the magnificent architecture? In this painting you'll spot a dodo, some dinosaur footprints, the swifts that nest in the tower, a dinosaur skeleton and so much more! My favourite bit is the frog in the jar. What's your's? The title comes from Charles Darwin's book 'The Origin of Species' in which he wrote of his theory of evolution by natural selection: "There is grandeur in this view of life..." The print is last one of a limited edition (of 4) hand-made drypoint tinted with watercolour - 450mm x 700mm.
