Frank Jarvis 1939-2002
Frank Jarvis was very much and established name in the world of bird art when he moved to Norwich in 1986. His diary pages not only capture beautifully his subjects but his words document a wonderful period in birdwatching - an era largely free of technology when binoculars, notebook and fieldcraft were the essentials for a day out.
Frank never owned a camera. He would return from the field to sit in a cafe, bar or in his studio. to record what he had observed. Frank never tired of the commonplace, always thrilled simply by 'the presence'.
