A Bronze Wildlife Sculpture

By Eddie Hallam

The female smew in breeding plumage is a really striking bird.  With a pure white body and black markings, it is unmistakable.

 

They are migrants to Britain and can be seen in winter months on British wetlands. Although they have the appearance of a duck, they belong to the merganser family.  

 

I sketched these at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge. It made my job a bit easier because the birds would regularly swim under the bridge on which I was standing. So not only did I get the normal pose, I had the opportunity to get several sketches from above which was very useful for the sculpting process.
