Continuing to put nature at the heart of Busy Bees Inverness, we have been involved in ‘National Nest Box Week’ which takes place each year from 14-21 February, and after more than 19 years it is now an established part of the ornithological calendar.
Our pre-school children have been immersed in this week of fascinating discovery and exploration! Together they built nature friendly nest boxes and placed them in appropriate trees in our incredible secret garden. They learnt which birds like to live in nest boxes, and which they are likely to see in our habitat. They made bird food mixture and talked about why we feed birds. They ended this week by building an amazing bird hide in the garden!
