The Schools’ BirdBox project 2017 is an exciting opportunity for
children to "give nature a home", and learn about the many birds that visit our school grounds throughout the year.
This picture shows a mother Blue Tit nesting on her eggs!
How appropriate just after Easter!
The project is managed by the South East Learning Associates.
Streaming started in mid March and will finish at the end of June.
It is an exciting project that gives our children the unique opportunity to watch live footage from inside our bird box. Children can also learn about the feeding habits of the many birds
that visit our bird feeding station.
This is the third year that St Teresa's Catholic Primary School has taken part in this project.

BIRD BOX CAMERA
Our bird box is fastened to a large tree
near the playing field.
We are expecting Blue Tits to nest here.
There is a camera inside the box that has night vision.
FEEDING STATION CAMERA
Our feeding area is outside the year 3 classroom.
We have hanging feeders for peanuts, mixed seeds
and fat balls.
This camera also has night vision.
