The residency encourages conversations between: artist and farmer; artist and curator; artist and student; artist and printmaker. All these conversations have been rich and fruitful exchanges of knowledge and I have enjoyed this part of the residency immensely. There is a rich natural fauna and flora on the farm due to certain management strategies and the proximity of woodland. I have been able to study wading birds in their inland habitat rather than on the marshland that is my usual haunt. I have had wonderful views of hares and witnessed behaviour I have not previously seen. I have studied the yellowhammer, goldfinches and migratory warblers. Nik Pollard
