    Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen, just a quick introduction as I will be hosting for the next two weeks, im 45 years old and have been doing taxidermy since I was 12 when i shot my first squirrel, ive been full time now 8 years and wishing id took the plunge to go full time a lot earlier, I live in the UK so get a great variety through the door, unfortunately im doing loads of work for some big outfitters now and have not had the chance to do any birds recently because its all mainly shoulder and full body mounts coming in, ill try and put up some pictures of older bits ive not posted yet. Please help me this week with some of your best and favourites birds you have done, thankyou.

    What a fantastic start to the week, the quality of work is amazing, Rustax that eagle and fox is the nicest mount ive ever seen. I know Rustax posted a Flying Bustard with a Peregrine once but have any of you got any other Bustards you could show us, thanks again and keep the quality coming.

    Nice birds !!! I like the diversity . Would be grand if we could mount a few of those song birds and raptors. The opportunity just doesn't come around often enough. Right now I have a room filling up with upland stuff. 1 in 4 of the guys showing up want something else they haven't harvested . You would be amazed how many I sell off the wall. Just a little sharpy.........

    Here is my bird from last week. The nightmare-duck! It was a juvenile with so much pinfeathers I nearly tossed it in the trash.
    I had to glue about 300 feathers back in. All i see are adult feathered ducks, are there other taxidermists that had to do immature birds? pics please. ;D
