Turnpike Lane Lapwing London

 We are always interested to see images of the birds that we are erecting in our Bird Henge in Wiltshire. In the unlikely setting of a street in Turnpike Lane north London is a picture of a Lapwing aka a Peewit. The dynamic Turnpike Arts Group have brightened up several streets with street art. Below an owl and a fox. Nearby a Banksy appeared on the side of a Poundland shop and disappeared.

We will have a Barn Owl in Bird Henge. The one below is more like a Tawny Owl. Our Lapwing/Peewit is up and survived the acid test of surviving some severe wind perched on its post. Its front needs a little adjustment but that is not the fault of the wind.

We have added a Peewit, a.ka. a Lapwing to Bird Henge. Its progress can be seen by a public path between Heytesbury and Knook in Wiltshire. Some fifty years ago there were large flocks  of these birds on ploughed fields in the county but they have become quite rare.Work in progress as it needs a bit of adjustment. Below stages in its creation,

Petrol tanks become High Priests

 We are busy with our two current projects. We had discussions at Stourhead with the National Trust over installations and art workshops on the estate which will  be themed on the effect of World War 1 on the community. And we have added some figures to the procession of High Priests in Bird Henge. This can be seen developing on a path between Heytesbury and Knook in Wiltshire. The shorter ones were petrol tanks.Work in progress - wings to be added to the High Priests. On the posts will be birds such as the Great Bustard. the Raven, the Peewit, the Kestrel birds of Wiltshire.
