Previously situated at Morton's Leam, near Stanground, the public artwork has now been relocated to Ferry Meadows. In its new setting near the Visitor Centre, Bird in Flight hopes to attract further attention from the public, highlighting Peterborough's Sculpture Collection as one of the city's best artistic assets.

Bob Dawson's work centres on wildlife and reflects the beauty found in the environment. He depicts nature in its most elegant and dynamic form, drawing on the continuous and ever moving cycle of life. Bird in Flight, made from sheet metal, represents a bird of the Fens in motion, showcasing its expansive wing span as it glides through the air.

Arts Development Manager, Sheena Carman says: 'Against the backdrop of the river, the bright steel surface of Bird in Flight will really stand out. For us the location of Ferry Meadows is ideal and we hope that visitors will enjoy interacting with the piece.'
