When I first arrive at Diddly squat farm back in 2008, I could spend all day in the fields and never see any bird life at all. But since then I have let the hedgerows run wild, I’ve planted game cover and I’ve managed the woods, so that now, the skies above the dark are teeming with life. Actual flocks of goldfinches and yellowhammers and linnets. It’s incredible.
What I’ve done with each of these cards is paint one of the birds I see here from time to time. Although obviously “I” haven’t painted them. Or they’d look like dogs. So a local girl has and I think they’re tremendous.
Introducing the first in our Birds of Diddly Squat Farm series, the winter Robin. Our wrapping paper gift pack comes with three large sheets of recycled paper, card and gift tag.
