Another Pipistrelle Rescue

Arrived home late with a car load of art gear to be unpacked. Minutes after, I received a phone call from our local vet saying a bat had been found on a road 12 miles away. The bat had been picked up and had just been delivered to them. Quick unload of the car and off...

It’s been a long while since I posted anything arty and months since I updated my News Journal, so thought I'd do a quick catch up, and say Hi. Life for everyone has been turned upside-down and inside-out and it has been pretty full-on in this neck of the woods too....

We have finally bought masks. Thought our Buffs would do, but they're a tad warm for summer days. Couldn't find bats, so to remind me of Mosi, my wolf buddy and wolves, this seemed appropriate.    Mosi and me ... and a photo of Mosi as a grand ol' lady can be seen in...

Onwards and Upwards

Our lovely white pigeons left for their new home today.  Not only were they our pets for four years, it was also a new venture that unfortunately never got off the ground due to family health issues.  It was heartbreaking having to part with them - but we have...

Waiting for Mum

A quick catch-up to say that for the last two nights we have visited the house where our rescued baby bat was found.  On both evenings our pup sat patiently on her heat-mat waiting for  mum to come and collect her.  On both occasions, a Pipistrelle bat flew-in close...

Bat No. 3.

Another call today re: a bat rescue.  A Pipistrelle pup was found crawling across a kitchen floor.  It appears she'd fallen through a tiny gap in the ceiling close to the boiler.  The lady of the house did all the right things: placed a folded soft cloth in a shoe...

Mrs Peacock & Chicks

Mrs Peacock and her chicks. This was the view from my studio window on June 18th last year. What a difference a year makes. I have no idea whether there are any chicks this year as the lodge has been covered in scaffolding for the past month or so, and as yet I've...

Mosi ‘n’ Me

Am really sorry to hear that dear Mosi has passed away. From 2006-2010 I was involved with the UK Wolf Conservation Trust. I had been invited by Denise Taylor, UKWCT Specialist Advisor and Prof. Marco Musiani from Calgary University, to illustrate two books concerned...

Flying Free

Lovely to see my 2nd rescued female Pipistrelle bat fly high and free tonight. 🦇 Just over a week ago she was cat attacked, but thankfully didn't receive any serious injuries and has progressed well. I returned her to the area in which she was found; she knew exactly...
