The Long, Wild Shore: Bird and Seal Seasons on Blakeney Point
Explores the seasons on the North Norfolk coast. It uses the famous landmark of Blakeney Point as its focus - an area steeped in history and renowned for its colonies of seals and nesting birds. Individual chapters show the lives of Common and Grey Seals and well-known breeding birds such as Little and Sandwich Terns, Oystercatchers and Ringed Plovers.
The area is also famed as a location to experience bird migration and additional illustrated chapters focus on this exciting spectacle. The paintings and sketches were made almost exclusively in the field at the time of watching and the vast majority were completed on Blakeney Point during the years that the author worked there as a warden.
