New nestboxes thanks to Project WildEd and Year 7s
The Action for Conservation charity has been working with groups of our Year 7s this year on a project called WildEd.
The aim of the project is to build a connection between young people and the nature that inhabits the environment around us. As part of this we have been completing a number of projects to help increase the biodiversity of the school grounds. This term we have completed a number of wildlife surveys and planted plants to attract insects. The latest survey we looked at the birds around school and found a number of nests with eggs or chicks. The teams then built nest boxes to replace the old ones previously put up by Nature Club. Look at the attached photos and VIDEO. Can you identify the species of bird from the eggs or their chicks? Let me Mr Mears know!
