Birds from the hedge

Here are some caricatures of bird life extracted from my Laurel hedge a few years ago. I got the idea from a book entitled "The Little Book of Whittling" by Chris Lubkemann, a real treasure trove of information about carving green wood with a knife, and several of his articles in Chip Chats magazine

  Wood: Cherry Laurel ( Prunus lauroceratus)      Height: Average 19 cms        Finish: nil

The choirmaster has lost a few feathers over the years from going around the shows but you will get the idea.
