And as something of a slight relief from the birds two more images from another friend of mine - Richard Shilling - who's creative thinking never ceases to amaze me as I have said many times before and you can see for yourself via the link in the column on the left of this post. The title of this piece of artwork is 'Floating Red Oak Leaf Squares'. Great stuff Richard, keep up the good work and many thanks for allowing me to brighten up Birds2blog occasionally with your creations.

Having decided to visit Dalton Crag again this year for his third in a row Jeff Butcher struck lucky with the bird partially named after him when he found the Great Grey Shrike with a group he had taken up there in the hope of seeing it and probably thinking he was living in the land of dreams as they made their way on to the crag......Excellent stuff Jeff.
