From Crosscanonby along Allonby Bay to Dubmill Point and the Lees Scar Lighthouse lies a flat inhospitable region. North and northwest, forested and sturdy, Dumfries and Galloway flexes its time immemorial muscles.

There was little on the beaches, but what there was proved distinctive, like the softly spoken local dialect. Don’t be misled by the seemingly chunky base/stem: it’s elder, very light. So worn by the elements that its knots stick out like organ-stops.

The region demanded the title. One little bird hugging its sanctuary, t’other permanently on the look out, revolving 360 degrees, never at rest.
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.
