A selection of drawings I did during last week , while guiding German birdwatchers in the lake.All of the sketches have been done on location using a spotting scope. I want to thank Hartmut M Bartmeise for giving me the chance to do it, and Nikos Gallios & Giorgos Spiridakis for the great company!Glad to meet also Ody Tzimoulis and Dimiter Georgiev.

Forgot to mention that videos taken in Hobart zoo( Tasmania) in the 30`s of last century have been a great help while creating my image.
