Birds and Booze... PPF

It seems to be all happening this week... well all except painting that is, but at least I managed to start a sketch. I'm not sure if you've heard of the BBC programme 'Springwatch' especially if you are situated outside of the UK, but it's airing at the moment and there's been some brilliant footage.
They have live camera's and it gives you a chance to really see nature up close and personal 24/7. Some scenes a little too close for my liking, but they're brilliant all the same. 
Here's a link if you'd like to take a peek - click here
They featured Puffins one evening and I'd heard that they are near the endangered list and since then I just can't get them out of my mind... so I started to draw them.
(I'm hoping that you can see this as it's really quite light)
There's a bird sanctuary not far from here, with the cliff tops crammed with wild birds and their nests. I keep saying that we must visit whilst the puffins are nesting. 
By the way, did you know that a young puffin is called a 'puffling'. 
Now you've got to agree that's rather cute.
Anyway, I've got to be on my game today... moving swiftly on because my hubby has purchased a huge beast of a garden tool, that has the potential to strip a whole woodland in one sweep never mind a feed weeds from around the perimeter of our garden!
I can virtually hear my plants gasp in horror and lean away in terror.
Heaven knows what damage he could do wielding that baby!
Don't worry... I'm going to be standing well back and wearing full safety gear and I'm not even going to be anywhere near. 
I'm taking no chances!
I may even need a stiff drink by the time he's finished.
None during for obvious reasons!
Talking of needing a stiff drink reminded me of my painting of a Bombay Sapphire Gin bottle 
(other gin's are available) 
I painted it a little while back, so maybe some of you haven't seen it before. 
My son has it on his bedroom wall and objected to me taking it down... so I took the photo in situ which wasn't the best idea... but there you go!
I'm linking up as usual with Eva and Kristin as usual over at PPF
and to Alexandra's Sunday Sketches 
Thanks for hosting once again ladies.
I hope you all have a wonderful safe weekend and thanks for visiting my place.
