Hatfield Moor, Doncaster

Natural England asked me to carve some flora and fauna  that had colonised old coal workings using timber found on site.    The adder was from a 6ft log and took full advantage of a side branch to make the head.  The Bog Cotton was quite quite a challenge as I could not find any pictures of seed head before it produced the cotton. I tried Google and the books and friends I consulted that show the   Eventually the Kew Gardens sent me a picture.   The Large Heath Butterfly  was no problem ,the Crested Grebe were just fun to do, and the Dragon fly was simple once I had found out how many segments there were in the body.     However the Nightjar pictures  are a nightmare.  They have such wonderful camouflage that it is difficult to see the outline of the bird.
