Every week we take a walk around the yacht harbour here at Perros-Guirec and I always keep my eyes open for interesting birds. The little egret is always there, on his own in the shallow water but this week I spotted a new arrival that I was able to photograph and then identify when we came home. A red necked grebe in it's winter colours swimming around the boats and getting mixed up with the cormorants but I could easily see the difference when I zoomed in on the photo. I've seen it twice now so I'll be keeping a lookout in future to see how long it stays!

Have you heard the old saying 'When the gorse is out of bloom, kissing is out of season?'
Well, here in Brittany it's very true and despite gales, heavy rain and some frost there are flowers all year round and of course we kiss our friends and neighbours every time we see them, on both cheeks!
Happy new year to all you nature lovers, keep on loving and drawing it at every opportunity!

I love a windless winter day on the coast. All too often I'd get way too chilled to stay out long enough to paint something like this.
