If I can suggest a narrative from two of three found items, that makes me smile.

This little bird is inspired by all the members of the feathered tribe that populate our lives knowingly or unknowingly.

The robust body shape suggests a sturdy, healthy little critter. Jaunty tail. Upright breast. It's cocky. (I guess it must be male!) What a head; that neat little eye, beady and watchful. Looks like someone has called out to him; " who me"?
Sid Burnard portraitSid Burnard was born in Brighton in 1948. Introduced to the art of beachcombing by his Romany grandmother, Sid learnt to appreciate the beauty of nature from an early age. His time at Bristol Guild of Applied Arts gave him a profound understanding of visual arts and crafts and allowed him to put his personal vision into practice.

He is now based in Borth near Aberystwyth in Wales, where the flotsam and jetsam from the nearby sea is his only source of materials. Working with found objects, nothing is changed - simply introduced to one another. His driftwood pieces, usually birds, boats or mythical beasts, are full of his passion, integrity and wonderful humour.
