British Birds – Woodpecker
Part of a limited edition series featuring five of my favourite British Birds. The prints were originally created with ink and watercolour and are indigo printed onto 200gsm Fedrigoni Tintoretto watercolour paper. All are signed by the artist.
This is the Great Spotted Woodpecker, which is more likely to be heard rather than seen in the British countryside as its drums away on tree trunks. This bird has special shock absorbent tissue as part of it's skull so it doesn't get a headache! The population of the Great Spotted Woodpecker has risen in the last 30 years and has become a regular at bird feeding stations.
Dimensions: H 24cm x W 15.5cm
