Sketches of gulls at Cambridge rubbish dump

Posted On: Saturday 18th February 2012
Summary: You can sketch pretty much anywhere! Cambridge City rubbish dump doesn't hold many attractions for the artist - unless of course you want to sketch gulls and other birds. I had thousands to choose from here.

There's a bigger concentration of birds on the city's rubbish dump than for miles around. I managed a couple of sketches in pencil just outside the perimeter fence, and I did a short audio recording for you as well.

Mostly Herring Gulls, Lesser Black backed gulls, jackdaws, Black headed gulls, as far as I could identify them.
