Avocet II by Jackie Garner, wildlife artist

Avocet II

Like my previous Avocet painting, this picture is the result of a visit to WWT Slimbridge's 'Wader Shore', a netted aviary which is home to Redshanks, Black-winged Stilts and of course, Avocets. It's ideal for wildlife artists and photographers because you can get very close to the birds and they seem happily oblivious to the people around them. I love watching waders so a few hours at Wader Shore filled quite a few pages in my sketchbook.

Avocet numbers in the UK have increased as a result of successful conservation and protection projects by organisations such as the WWT and RSPB. As the well-known symbol of the RSPB, Avocets with their striking colouring and iconic shape are one of the UK's most popular birds.
Whenever I see Avocets, I want to paint them!
