Fox Eyes Print £15.00 (inc P&P)Image size 12cm x 8cm on A4
The Red Fox, loved and hated by the British public. For some a persecuted wild animal, for others a pest that needs to be controlled. The country Fox, more elusive than his urban counterpart, but both opportunists and hardy survivors. Foxes have 3 to 8 young each year. Mating in January or February and birthing in March or April. A Fox, can live for 10 to 12 years, if he makes it that far.
Grey Heron Print £15.00 (inc P&P) Image size 15cm x 12cm on A4
The Grey Heron, quite a common site on British waterways, and also a frequent visitor to garden ponds. Unmistakable when you come across one, but usually they are so still that you don't see them, they see you and the first you know of it, is when they take to the air. Herons grow to 90cm to 98cm and can live for up to 25 years. This one is based on one of my own sketches of a Heron that I watched via a scope while on holiday in 2011.
Hedgehog Print £15.00 (inc P&P) Image size 14cm x 8cm on A4
The Hedgehogs tends to lead a solitary and nocturnal life. Instantly recognisable with his spiny coat, and his ability to curl into a spiny ball for self defence. Hedgehogs make great garden pest controllers, as they will eat almost anything (bugs, slugs, snails etc). They can live for up to 8 to 10 years and grow to 25cm to 29cm. This drawing is based on one that visited our garden durning the summer of 2011, I think the bird seed we put out for the birds was attracting him.
