Seagulls are really cute when they are this young. But the nest is just above my neighbour’s bedroom window. I hope they have found some good ear plugs…

About Anna

I am a ceramic sculptor living on the South coast near London, England. My work is influenced by my experience of the earth as a living being and seeing how we are all connected with eachother and with the things that surround us. I create ceramic torsos using molochite clay which I often smokefire in galvanised dustbins. I also make House Gods to protect and amuse, and Fat Birds - little smokefired sculptures that tell the story about what it is like to be a fat bird at peace with its surroundings.

    Last year, I looked after a baby seagull because it had fallen off the roof and couldn’t fly. The neighbours wanted to kill it, so I took it out the back until it tried to learn to fly by leaping off the rear balcony.

    I called it Kiwi as that’s what it reminded me of. The high pitched screeching though, that’s enough to want to plug it up 😆

      Yes, it is a bit hard on the ears – but how did Kiwi fare? Does he come back to see you from time to time?

        I believe he did. I took him to the vets to go to a seagull sanctuary where he could learn to fly without problems. I used to feed him tuna off of the fork. One time there were a few seagulls and I offered them tuna off the fork and only one came near, so I believe it may well have been him. I like to think so anyway

      Dear Sonel, thank you, but I do need a new camera…I see all these wonderful things and I just cannot capture them properly! The pictures are all soft, out of focus…And I think the neighbours will be fine; they are quite elderly; perhaps they won’t hear the commotion! Here’s hoping x

        Oh, don’t worry…the same here Anna. I would love one with a telephoto lens. The thing with birds is that you have to capture them from a distance and I would so love to just sit and do that most of the time. I am glad you think the neighbours would not bother them. Have a great day. 😀 *hugs*
