This piece demonstrates the effects of warming seas in St Kilda, Scotland. The bird’s food source (fish, shrimp, etc.) will move north or deeper into the sea where it is cooler, leaving the bird with less prey to feed itself and its young.
Exhibited at StudionAme in Leicester as part of a solo exhibition to explore the effects of climate change on bird species. Working in collaboration with scientists and experts in the natural world from the British Trust of Ornithology and the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust.
