Bring a little patch of the Yorkshire South Pennines into your home with this sweet little Twite woodcut. Small but perfectly formed the Twite is a rare visitor these days. Their habitat is threatened and we will surely miss them if they go for good.

 

Enjoy this woodcut collage and get a sense of the wild outdoor spaces where tiny lives are lived in secret.

 

Why is a Twite called a Twite you may ask? I believe it derives from the distinctive twit-twit call of this little bird. Twites are similar to Linnets and their name in the Welsh language is Llinos y Myndd as in Mountain Linnet. In France they are called Linotte à bec jaune - yellow beaked Linnet. 

 

The Twite's scientific name is Linaria Flavirostris which literally means 'yellow-billed linen weaver'

probably because they feed on flax/linen seeds and those of other small weeds.
