Kittiwakes And Kitteh Sleeps

Having a spot of time away on the South East coast of England and went for a walk in gale force winds (although it was sunny) to Splash Point at Seaford Head to see a colony of Kittiwakes, who arrive every year around Easter and leave, according to local lore, the day before the Eastbourne Airshow. The wind was so severe that I could only spend a few moments scribbling; the high tide was crashing around me as well. Here’s the little sketch I made of Kittiwakes clinging to a large rock in the ocean a few yards from the massive chalk cliffs.

And then back indoors out of the gale and my friend’s kitteh sleeping in a shaft of sunlight.
