In looking at various reference books and images for redwings, I came across a beautiful birding blog by John, who is based in Cambridgeshire. I asked his permission to use his lovely photo of a redwing as a basis for a drawing, and he kindly agreed.
I added in a hawthorn branch from a tree in my garden, and created the image below.
Many thanks John for letting me use your photo as a reference. If you love birds, take a look at the stunning pictures over on John’s Hedgeland Tales blog.
