Did you know that the 14th – 21st February was National Nest Box Week?
Our Dulwich Prep Eco Warriors in Year 1 and 2 learnt about why birds use nest boxes, what nesting materials they like to use and the best locations for bird boxes. The boys were very interested in this and, using bird boxes made by boys in school, helped to line them with suitable materials they found outside. The boys are currently scouting our school grounds looking for the best areas to hang them.
We’re hoping that by encouraging birds into our school grounds, it gives us the chance to contribute to bird conservation and observe any that use our nest boxes for breeding. See if you can spot our nest boxes the next time you’re at school and please let us know if you spot any activity!
