Heinz Felsch, with the support of his wife Brigitte Felsch-Reiff, worked on larger scale commissions of architectural art from the mid-1960s to the late 1970s, which were mainly mosaic wall friezes in the lobbies of newly built hospitals and schools.
For lack of other bird images during this nearly birding-less month, Ill have to chose this Herring Gull from an early mornings seawatch at Cape Penhir near Camaret-sur-mer, Brittany.
It was at this point that I fully realized that serious competitiveness is not something that floats my birding boat, it sinks.And I also managed to bird around Germany extensively, visiting all but one of the nations 16 Bundesländer (states, provinces, whatever and I ended the year in southern France, watching scores of Greater Flamingos.In the late 1970s when their commercial opportunities were not as plentiful, the couple started to produce their own range of small ceramic medallions and ceramic jewellery, which helped to support them financially.The late afternoon brings the first substantial rain since the beginning of July.Heinz and Brigitte regularly spent the summer months during the late 1940s to the mid-1950s in Ahrenshoop, a little fishing village on the Baltic Sea, known for their artist community.
By the end cham singles of November, I was so frustrated that I considered taking a (short) break from birding, for the first time ever in my life.
Rest of November : a quiet time with work, work, work The über-cool Black Hornbill.Searching for something to make the long commutes home pass a little quickerand without the distraction of giving lip-service to learning a new language with those audio-lessons, I rediscovered a cache of podcasts, easy too download and enjoy on the drive on some really engrossing.Aug 24 to Aug 31 : A week in northern Bretagne on the Pink Granite Coast.Recent exhibition of paintings, lithographic prints and drawings In London at studio_13A udio13a.london.Jan 22: A business trip to Stuttgart offered a chance to succesfully chase an Arctic Diver on the river Neckar in the middle of the city!We found 102 level 1 folders and 121 folders above or in the first level of navigation.Again, the shorebirds are amazing, and I find 22 species, including a group of 7 Broad-billed Sandpipers, 4 Red-necked Pharalopes, and my first-of-the-year Bar-tailed Godwits and Avocets.The goal of 350 species and at least one lifer is very ambitious (unrealistic?) should I not leave Germany anymore this year.
