Linnet

September 7: As the Crow Flies – A 30 day drawing project. September 2015

My old man said: “Foller the van, And don’t dilly-dally on the way”. Off went the van wiv me ‘ome packed in it. I walked be’ind wiv me old cock linnet. But I dialled and dallied, Dallied and dialled…..

The linnet, a type of finch was once a popular cage bird because of its melodious song! My ladybird book dates from a period (1960’s/’70’s ) when they were very common but their numbers in the UK have declined substantially over the past few decades according to the RSPB.
