YOUNG modelmakers have seen their bird-themed creations go on display at the RSPB Centre at Fairhaven Lake.

Year Nine art pupils from Palatine Sports College in South Shore each created a bird sculpture using a variety of collage and model making skills.

The youngsters used recycled materials in a bid to bring the importance of the message reuse, reduce and recycle to help the environment.

Ann Pullen, head of art at Palatine, said: “Visitors have commented on how individual the birds are and how they all have their own little characters, some have even been asking to buy them.

“The standard of the sculptures is very high and the students enjoyed creating them.”

The bodies of the birds have been made using scrunched up newspaper and sticky tape, buttons were added for the eyes and they were placed on to driftwood bases.
