These are some of the illustrations that I have produced over the last 5 years or so.These digitalised images have been taken from originals - Any member of the London Bird Club is welcome to use.

If any are to be incorporated into a leaflet or report, the only request I have would be that the artist name (Myself) is acknowledged in any reproduction of this type. Some of these images have been used by the national trust on wildife leflets and interpretation boards at there wandle valley properties and also by a number of councils....


09-heron

Heron

The Heron taken from extensive observations made while studing the herons at Morden Hall Park. Here pictured catching a Perch.

Amphibains appear therefore to be a very important resource for female Heron pryior to egg laying and incubation....
