Ruari’s Nature Collection

Hi everyone. Some of you know I’m mad about birds and the natural world. I’d like to share a few of the items I gave managed to collect whilst out and about. My favourite items are feathers but I just don’t have enough space or time to show them all. Anyway, your feedback or even better, a look at your collections would be great. Ruari

    Ruari, I am in awe of your beautiful collection. I would love to own a goldfinch feather, but I don’t think my eyes are as good as yours as I never seem to spot any – even though they visit my garden regularly. I do have a lovely buzzard feather though, so that’s something.
    You clearly know a great deal about nature and, in particular, your passion and knowledge about birds shines through.
    I have a couple of questions for you. Do you ever do sketches or drawings of nature that you see? Do you keep a log book to record birds you’ve seen?
    Thanks for sharing your collection. I’d love to see more of it one day.

      Thanks Kathie; no i don’t keep a log book yet but i will now ! I do lots of artwork on birds, maybe every day! I draw and paint and I love their lovely and vibrant colours.

    Hello it’s Emma, Senior Sixer here – I found this really interesting and I really enjoyed it. I like feathers too but I wouldn’t know what bird they are from! I think its a fantastic collection. I don’t have a collection of anything myself, but my hobbies are dance, drumming and recently I’ve been really enjoying doing art. Bye Ruari! See you tonight at cubs!

      Thanks Emma! Please can you send in some of your art that you do. I would really love to see a video of you drumming. See you next wednesday. Ruari
