Lunchtime sketches at Welney bird reserve

I had a busy time of lectures at Welney Wildfowl trust, but at luchtime there was still some spare time to get out onto the reserve and sketch a few birds and the general scene

There was a bit of spare time though so I ventured out to the reserve to do some sketches. I managed three quick visual notes. And a photograph! Here's the very short video I put together of my short walk to sketch at lunchtime:
