Swift Bird calls switched on
1st Class were delighted to be asked to switch on the swift bird call signals on 1st May. These recorded bird sounds will hopefully entice swifts to nest in the boxes at the Rosmore end of the school.
We have 6 bird boxes in total, and two of these have cameras installed, so the children can keep a close eye on the bird boxes and will let us know if anything comes to nest there in the coming weeks.
Last year we had some blue tits and nine chicks. It would be great if we got a swift or two this year as the swift population is in decline and we are working closely with the Swift Conservation Ireland to see if we can reverse that trend.
Watch this space!
