|I think this is Bugle (Ajuga reptans).|
|I thought this was probably Cow Parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris).|
|I knew this was a member of the pea family, I thought probably some kind of vetch. There are rather a lot in my key! Going to take a punt at Common Vetch (Vicia sativa).|
I'm quite pleased with today's drawings, I think they are the best I've done in the field so far, although that's not saying much. They're certainly an improvement on the pathetic efforts of my last trip!
|Sketches of Lapwing chicks & Common Terns.|
The Common Terns looked like they were really enjoying the sun. The Lapwing chicks are quite forgiving to draw, they are so fuzzy you can just make any mistake into some more fuzz!
