Year seven boys in the Wildlife Group at Whalley-based Oakhill College have been busy making bird houses to site across the College’s gardens and make its local birdlife feel at home this spring.
The boxes have been completed in good time for the nesting season and will be put up at points around the school where pupils can observe any nesting activity. Nesting materials will be positioned nearby, suitable for the birds to make their home from, and hopefully the children will be able to see fledglings in a few months’ time.
The Wildlife Group is now well on its way to obtaining a Bronze RSPB Wildlife Action Award, which involves taking part in at least six different activities based around nature and our environment. It is testament to the effort of the boys and the teachers and their dedication towards preserving the local wildlife and their habitats.
