Twite Woodcuts

A collection of woodcuts and woodcut collages featuring a rare little finch, the Twite (Linaria Flavirostris) which comes to the South Pennine moors to breed during summer. They only eat seeds so are endangered when upland meadows are mowed too early.

 

 

 

 

 

They may be considered by some 'just little brown birds' but why accept these hierarchies of value?  Every creature is a miracle of life on this small rock twirling in the freezing vacuum of space!

 

Having worked on a RSPB project to protect Twites, I feel an affection for them.
