Local birds II: egretts, buzzards, owls, and passerines

Some sketches from this weekend. On Saturday I was sketching some Little Egrets Egretta garzetta near the river:

On Sunday I sketched a Common Buzzard Buteo buteo but it flew away before I could end the drawing, so I sketched some Little Owls Athene noctua:

I also tried to sketch a Southern Gray Shrike Lanius meridionalis, which flew away too, and some Meadow Pipits Anthus pratensis:
