Bird Pin Trail

Bird Pin trail 'I'm part of the Galloway Hoard which was buried in Scotland over 1000 years ago... Now I've come to the museum and met lots of other birds! Spot me hiding amongst my new feathered friends. At each stop, I'll reveal a letter. Find all six and the letters will spell out something special about me. Start on level 1, Grand Gallery. I've found a big eagle on a printing press. Animal World - I'm with the tallest bird in the world. Fly up to Level 3 - Making and Creating. I'm hanging out with an arty owl. Art of Ceramics - I;m admiring a big vase. Fly up to Level 5 - Design for Living. I'm counting birds in an embroidery. Inspired by Nature - I've 'nosed' my way to an incense burner'
