After a lot of hard work and a lot of fun the new peatland mural in the Forsinard Flows visitor centre is now complete. When visiting you will find it on your right as you walk in. Completed in acrylic, I began in April and then finished from late June into late July.

The mural features much of the iconic flora and fauna of the Flow Country, including one of Britain’s most persecuted bird species, the Hen Harrier. This species is still found in the Flow Country, but has been driven to near extinction across many other parts of Britain. The spectacle of ghostly grey males and their beautiful sky dancing displays has sadly become a rare sight in our landscape.

There are many other species in the mural, how many do you recognise? What wildlife do you enjoy and why? Tell me in the comments below.
