My Celtic Kestrel artwork plus a look at the history, myth, folklore and meaning of the kestrel...
The beautiful kestrel is the UK’s second most common bird of prey. Often called the ‘motorway hawk’, if you’ve seen a small bird of prey hovering above the verge of a motorway or other road, you’ve likely seen a kestrel.
Although still a common sight in Britain, numbers suffered in the past as kestrels were often killed by gamekeepers in the late 19th and early 20th century, and they have also been affected by organochlorine pesticides in the 1950s and 1960s.
Since the 1980s, the kestrel population has fluctuated but currently appears to be in moderate decline, although the reason why is not yet known, and the kestrel has therefore been listed on the Amber List of Birds of Conservation Concern.
My Celtic collared dove art 'Collared Doves in Blossom' together with a look at dove symbolism, myth and meaning...
The dove is one of our most beloved birds and a universally-recognised symbol of peace, love, and harmony.
There are actually many types of dove and in my artwork, I’ve chosen to show collared doves as we have a pair we often see perched on our chimney and roof.
They are quite a favourite bird of mine as we used to have a pair in my childhood garden. My mum told me that they were rare and we were lucky to have them, so I always thought of them as quite special.
Collared doves were certainly a rare bird in Britain when my mum was a child as they originally hail from the Balkans, Turkey, and Asia – and only bred in Britain for the first time in 1955. They spread across the country naturally and are now very common in Britain.
Young collared doves will fly up to 600km, usually in a north-westerly direction, from their birthplace – so we can see how so many have ended up in Britain.
My Celtic Moths art - plus a dive into moth meaning, symbolism and folklore to explore the place that moths hold in our understanding...
What are moths?
Moths, often seen as ‘night butterflies’ are actually a cousin of the butterfly. They are of the same scientific classification ‘lepidoptera’ but are distinctively different species.
Although most moths do fly by night, many are seen during the day and may be mistaken for butterflies.
Moths may be as old as 190 million years old – more ancient than butterflies!
The easiest way to tell a butterfly from a moth in most cases is that the moth folds its wings flat over its body when at rest, whereas the butterfly folds its wings up over its back.
The moth also usually has feathery antennae which the butterfly does not. Moths pupate in cocoons of silk while butterflies pupate in a hard, smooth chrysalis.
