Building a nest box for birds

As part of our work through Eco Club, Mr. Gray took some pupils to discuss the garden birds found around Moira.


We looked at nesting boxes and how the size of hole on the front varied in size, depending on the type of bird.  We constructed three nesting boxes, with different sized holes for our school grounds.


The children used their mathematical skills to measure and mark where needed drilling.


The children gained some 'DIY' experience in using a square, hammer, drill and impact driver.
