2018-19: The Red List
The RSPB UK Red List keeps track of how different species are doing, and any birds that are rated red are in need of urgent action. Shockingly, one in four of our birds are now on that list. 67 species in total.
This extensive project to depict each one of those 67 birds, in their natural habitat, is still in progress. On commencing this project, I had no idea that many of the birds of my childhood were in danger of extinction and that my grandchildren might never see them in the wild.
I have yet to complete the final series of birds that live in pastures hedgerows and orchards. My aim is to raise awareness of the plight of many of our common birds and to support the RSPB by donating a percentage of each print sold to their cause.
