A drawing is at the Natural History Society of Northumbria, #16. Although Bain identifies this as a transfer drawing (Bain I, 138), although June Holmes examined the drawing in the Newcastle collection and reported that the drawing could not have been used as a transfer drawing for the engraving published in Bewick's Land Birds as it is not inverted. The drawing does, however, have block marks, but this would not have been used as a transfer drawing for the present engraving.
