Bird Boxes

Another project involving young people is the objective of attracting more birds, bats and wild life to use our environment. 10 new bird boxes have been prepared in “flat pack” form and the pupils at Queensferry Primary School  built the boxes with some adult supervision. This provide the pupils with some rudimentary craft skills and they will also learn about the various species of birds that are regular inhabitants of the Glen and also the migratory ones who “visit” the Glen at certain times of the year.  As part of the project the plan is for the pupils to make a record of the bird box “take up “rates and  noting which species have taken up residence .
