Stone Curlew – Martin Down, Hampshire

Back in 2000 Stone Curlews bred at Martin Down on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border, there was a roped off section on the Down where this pair took up residency. 

They’re a nice bird to sketch as they spend time motionless before taking a few steps and then they’re motionless again. They visit us from southern Europe and northern Africa.††
