i have been trying to load photos today with not much luck so will try again later . i have been busy working in schools for a few weeks working with the children to create birds. each child has chosen a bird to represent themselves and is exploring drawing and making of the bird.. we hope to make an exchange with Cape Breton in the form of postcards which can be sent over to a school there with information about the children and the area . this links well with the history of emigration from Handa to that area but also provides a positive experience for young people . the teacher involved has told me that her ancestors travelled on the 'Hector' which travelled to that area from sutherland bringing the first immigrants from this area.
the razorbill is just getting some last minute adjustments and i hope to have him ready this week!
