New neighbours


A new family have move in, next door. You can see the proud parent up in the left hand corner. It is not Mindy


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…

More Mindy stories


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 😆


    • Anna says:

      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?


      • Alastair says:

        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

    Oh, I do hope the neighbours would put up with the sounds. They are quite lovely Anna. Thanks for sharing these lovely photo’s hon. 😀 *hugs*


    • Anna says:

      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


      • Sonel says:

        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*
