Here’s a voluptuous creature I found in my sketchbook this weekend (possibly inspired by the Ashmolean Museum’s exhibition of Great British Drawings that we went to see again.)

Apologies for the lack of updates. I hope this cheerful and talented lady makes up for it in some small way.
5. Do you think we were observed?
6. I fear that Brontesaurus.
The weekend of 24-25 January 2015 is the date for the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch, so you’ll need to get ready to count!
RSPB were interested enough to publish today’s comic on their blog… so if you arrived here from there WELCOME. Please consider leaving a comment to say you’ve been here. Thinking about it, quite a few of comics from the past have been about birds, RSPB or wildlife in general.
I've already seen eighteen adults and eleven children! How about you?
It’s been rather windy round here for the last few days. I’d like to thank Antonia for suggesting the chinchilla in the starring role, but I do seem to have made it rather ratty. Still, rats can be cute too. Previously it’s been bikes and rhinos.
Happy “whatever” to you, dear readers.
Today’s comic was inspired by our visit to our local RSPB bird reserve at Otmoor, yesterday, where we saw and heard an astonishing murmuration of starlings (estimated at around 50,000) swirling around above us and finally coming down to roost in the reeds. My point-and-click photo doesn’t begin to do it justice, and of course there’s the sound of the wings and the calls too! If you get a chance, enjoy this sight while you possibly can — starlings are on the critical list and in serious decline.
UPDATE: Karen put up a video of this on her blog.
"I don't feel like going out again this evening. How about we stay in and have a nice, cosy murmuration here - just the two of us?"
