A sculpture by Sydney James Burnett, erected in the late sixties at Fraserburgh Community Centre. It depicts Seagulls.
As you can see it has been subjected to a lot of graffiti. Should that have been cleaned off?
Or had done to it what one of Fraserburgh's artists in residence got the kids to do to it?
Which, according to some of the natives, is indeed vandalism. And encourages kids tro daub other works of art.
I tend to agree, not sure what Mr Burnett thinks.
Now a few images of Spring.
Memories of primary school days when there was always a jug of catkins in the classroom in Spring!
Now two robins in the garden. The Dawn Patroller has along with other nest boxes, erected one the Robins should like. I am sure you are all aware that different birds have a preference on their boudoirs, hole, no hole, large hole, small hole, ledge, platform of twigs, somebody elses nest.....
I spent almost an hour watching this lot of Rooks and Jackdaws. Wheeling around the field, landing, taking off again. I just thought it was like the Mecca of my old days where you drifted about, did a bit of a dance, keeping your eye on the talent around before homing in. They were not feeding. Definitely eyeing up the possible future partner.
So I really feel Spring is on its way.
Pity about the weather forecast.
