Birch was a prolific artist who worked in the Mills in Manchester and Lancaster and painted in his spare time.

This picture is painted onto a thick canvas which gives the painting its specific texture. The painting, with its low horizon, huge grey sky and birds circling overhead, is very dramatic.
