Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is a very attractive sculpture showing seabirds in flight on the coast at Sunderland Point.

I'm sure that many people who live in the U.K. have not heard of Sunderland Point. Sunderland Point, is a small village among the marshes, on a windswept peninsula between the mouth of the River Lune and Morecambe Bay, in the City of Lancaster district of Lancashire. It was used as a port for slave ships and cotton ships but its importance declined as other ports such as Lancaster were opened up.

Sunderland is unique in the United Kingdom as being the only community to be on the mainland and yet dependent upon tidal access. The only vehicular access to the village is via a single-track road from Overton 1.5 miles (2.4 km) away crossing a tidal marsh. The road is covered by water at every high tide. Among other effects, this results in the children of Sunderland sometimes being required to arrive late at school in Overton or to leave early to avoid being cut off by the tide. - Wikipedia

I took the photograph with my mobile phone

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
