1st- 3rd June: a rainy day's walking, Kazakhstan on tv and a museum full of stuffed animals.

1st June: a particularly rainy day walking in Tyresta national park, just a quick sketch when I stopped in a wooden shelter to get out of the rain. As I sat there looking out over the lake, a woodpecker obligingly landed on one of the trees in front, though not for long enough to get a very clear sketch.
2nd June: keeping the pen moving while watching tv- a programme about Kazakhstan.

3rd June: Biologiska Museet. An old museum which consists of a huge panorama of stuffed - Scandinavian- animals with painted backgrounds and scenery that shows their natural habitats. I don't think it's changed much since it opened in 1893, and everything is fading a bit, but it's an interesting, if slightly sad place. Plus it's entertaining to try and identify all the birds and animals from the list they give you.
