I've been busy making monprints to incorporate in my hand-made books, as well as starting on new works featuring the Sacred Ibis, another notorious urban dweller, as part of my 'Conservation of the Species' series.
I've also been re-working prints from my first Bower series. There were 3 prints that I regarded as not particularly successful, mostly due to being too 'busy' without a focal point. I have managed to bring at least 2 of those prints back, the results of one of those prints is shown in the photos below. Its quite challenging to try and work out how to strengthen a print that is at the point of being overworked. A delicate process fraught with danger!

Still busy but more interesting.
