Synopsis
 
Waveney & Blyth Arts teamed up the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, the RSPB, Birdswing and both the Norfolk and Suffolk Biodiversity Partnerships, and with Nutmeg Puppet Company for the Famous Five Birds project.

Meg Amsden, puppeteer; Matt Howard, poet; and ornithologists Steve and Kathy Piotrowski ran workshops in 10 schools in the Waveney and Blyth Valleys in North Suffolk and East Norfolk in March and April 2013. Meg worked with composer and pianist Nathan Williamson on a shadow puppet show to be performed at family events in August and September.

The Famous Five Birds are the bittern, barn owl, bearded tit, marsh harrier and nightingale.

The project is funded by Touching the Tide (HLF), Essex and Suffolk Water, and Broads Authority Sustainable Development Fund.

A video Meg's workshop at Halesworth’s Edgar Sewter School is here.
