Wildlife warrior at work

One of our Year 9 students has made great use of his time during lockdown, by putting his design technology skills into action and building a bird-box for his grandad’s garden.

In the UK, the Bird Nesting Season officially runs from February to August, so you might well have seen birds busy in your garden or nearby, making preparations for their new families to arrive.

If you are inspired by this student’s wonderful work and would like to make a bird-box of your own, there is a link below to the RSPB website, which gives step-by-step instructions for this ‘Wild Family Challenge’ (should you be fortunate enough to have all the necessary materials to hand!)

RSPB – build a bird-box

Hopefully this beautiful bird-box will have lots of noisy new occupants soon!
