Watch The Birdie

Staff, patients and visitors at the Women and Children’s Unit at Forth Valley Royal Hospital are able to see a host of ‘garden birds’ in the courtyard, thanks to the handiwork of pupils at Larbert High School. They have crafted this display from clay, and perched the birds on a log which was donated by the Forestry Commission

The sculpture, birds of the imagination, is part of the Community Arts curriculum in partnership with NHS Forth Valley.

NHS Forth Valley Charitable Arts and Wellbeing Coordinator, Babs McCool, said: “I think it’s been very well received. The youngsters have enjoyed making the birds and the sculpture is drawing many admiring glances. It’s also become something of a new home for real-life wildlife, including ladybirds, spiders and moths!”
