The pupils of Kilcorney N.S. are always very aware of the tough lives our little bird friends lead throughout the winter season. In order for them to settle comfortably into the breeding season, and to entice our migratory birds back home, we built and painted 36 bird boxes.
We really enjoyed hammering the nails into the sides of each box and couldn’t wait to get our hands dirty with the paint. Luckily for us the sun shone all day and so we got to complete our manual labour outside!
At the end of the day we each got to bring our bird box home. We couldn’t wait to hang them up and wait for some visitors to call.
To see more photos of the bird-boxes and other happenings at Kilcorney NS, go to the Kilcorney NS website ( kilcorneyns.ie ), where they love to share their stories and photos.
