Morecambe Bird Art

A visit to Morecambe in Lancashire gave me a chance to look at the art that has been installed as part of the Tern project All along the promenade and out onto the Stone Jetty are pieces of landscape art. I particularly liked these rather leggy Coots and spread-eagled Cormorants.

The sculptures add a nice sense of place, they could perhaps work better with the aid of some additional interpretation to get folk to connect the sculptures with the internationally important wetland [Morecambe Bay] that they over look.

Whilst looking at the artworks in the gloom of early morning, it was great to see a Peregrine tear through and scare the local Oystercatchers into flight.
