Nest Box Pilot Scheme


We have been selected by Laois BirdWatch Ireland for a nest box pilot scheme.The aim of the pilot scheme is to encourage us to become more aware of the bird life in our school grounds.  Five bird boxes have been placed in the trees around our school and we are watching them to see if  any birds will make their nests in them. If they do a camera may be placed in the bird box so we can see what’s happening inside.Nestbox
