Inspired by the flora and fauna of the National Nature Reserve I have designed a series of sculptures to be created for Lindisfarne's Nature trail. We had the third of our six planned volunteer sessions making the sculptures yesterday
Some talented volunteers have made a fantastic job of helping to create the sculptures so far. Some have been keen to return and do more and enjoyed the opportunity to be involved. They are all proud to think that their work will be on the island and look forward to seeing it when the trail is complete.
To date we have a Lapwing and a Short Eared Owl completed. Two female Eiders and eight ducklings are just about finished to complete the creche. Yesterday we started the Helliborine Orchid and the Fritillary Butterfly. There are still some Brent Geese, Swallows and an Artic Tern to be made in the following sessions.
My husband Richard has made the metal frameworks, and I have also involved the local blacksmith, Stephen Mather of Holburn Smithy, in the construction and welding of some of the larger frameworks.
If you would like to be involved, then please contact Sarah
