One Small BirdPosted on: 02/07/2022
Humphry Davy School's choir had a fantastic time performing at the Minack Theatre this week in the Cornwall School's production of 'One Small Bird' - a song cycle inspired by the RSPB’s 2014 discovery of the migratory route of one of Britain’s rarest birds, the red-necked phalarope.
The Red-necked Phalarope is a tiny creature. Weighing no more than a packet of crisps, it successfully crosses the Atlantic between Shetland and Peru every year, passing through environments as diverse and challenging as the icy regions of the north and the storms of the Caribbean.
This little bird’s journey tells an inspiring story about strength and resilience in the face of harsh conditions, and of the unstoppable drive for survival among earth’s creatures.
One Small Bird has been performed by young people and community groups across Britain and we are thrilled have been a part of this production.
