#We Promised You a New Buzzard and Here It is Going in Place!

True to his word Ed Pilkington arrived last Thursday with the new buzzard he's carved for the Millennium Green. It's based on a 12 foot long sturdy bough of oak stripped of its bark. The lower section was treated with wood preserver before being most skilfully manoeuvred by Ed into a four foot deep hole near the Green gate close to where his predecessor proudly stood. The next stage was to get the Buzzard standing upright and facing the gate then packing the hole with clay, limestone chippings and soil so it's firmly secured in the ground. Then, it will be treated with Danish Oil on a regular basis in order to minimise cracking and rot as the wood ages. We hope you'll enjoy having our new buzzard guarding the gate and welcoming you to the Green for for many years and when do come , look up in the sky for real life buzzards soaring above Henbury . You can find out more about these magnificent birds here.
