A horrible interlude
I have been busy lately with a number of on-going illustration and design projects. I had an unpleasant interlude today. A young bird (I believe it was a thrush) fell out of a tree in the garden and broke its back, requiring me to clobber it with a spade and put it out of its misery. It's the first warm-blooded creature I've had to personally dispatch at close quarters, and I wouldn't enjoy having to do that on a regular basis.
