    Courtship of the Terns

    Taken yesterday at Carrmill the male Common Tern is feeding the female as part of the courting ritual. In most cases of courtship feeding,the female adopts an attitude and calls almost identical with those of a young bird begging food from its parents, and the male puts food into the female’s mouth.

    Website birthday

    Yes,Happy Birthday St.Helens Connect,I love contributing on here.
  15. The view of a Night Watchman, is the culmination of a two-year project undertaken by artist Kevin Casey. Part documentary photography, part archival re-presentation and part making ends meet, as Casey’s ‘night job’ as an on-site security guard at the former Pilkington Glass Headquarters became his ‘day job’ as an artist, the work presented tells the story of an uncertain future, tense present and captivating past. The collection, including C-Type prints, archive film, projections and uncovered artefacts also testifies to the situation that Casey found himself in – part voyeur and part guardian – whilst drawing the viewers’ attention to the vicissitudes of contemporary capitalism and its contested relationship to our recent industrial and manufacturing past. Further to the works on display at Alexandra Park, visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to visit selected spaces within the former Pilkington Glass complex, designed by the mid-20th Century Architect, Edwin Maxwell Fry, of Fry and Drew. A short tour will include a visit to the modernist Tower whose Armourclad panels have dominated the skyline of St. Helen’s since the complexes construction in the late 1950s. Avinash Chandra’s back-lit, abstract relief panel of stained, fused glass and Jon Humphrey Spender’s artwork can also be viewed, as well as the panelled lift lobby, former canteen and elements of the landscaped grounds, including the north lake and concrete bridge. As much of the site is not normally publicly accessible, the exhibition and short tour provides a rare opportunity to view a Modernist landmark and exhibited materials that possess a deep local and global significance.

I couldn't really talk to Kevin much as a guy was chatting to him for nearly the full hour plus a few other people.Kevin still works there which i said it must be eerie but with an High-Vis and torch it goes along way patrolling he said. I thought we was going to the top of the tower but he said we can't due to health and safety. Anyway it was worth going but i hope @RATTY can take more in than i could. Thanks Kevin. Ps,i told him about this site so i hope he joins and gives more info.
