This week at Castle Semple, there has been a lot of sawing, drilling and hammering.
You might have seen bird boxes during your walks in Parkhill Woods. Over time the boxes get damaged by the weather and by woodland animals (notably squirrels and woodpeckers). That’s why this Thursday’s task for the Conservation Volunteers was to make new boxes to replace the damaged ones.
Our feathery friends will have their pick of new boxes when choosing where to nest this winter!
As part of our October Week agenda of activities, kids also had the opportunity to make their very own bird nesting box.
This project is supported by Nature Scot, through the Better Places Green Recovery Fund.
