As we near the nesting season, we at Wildlife Club thought we would have a go at building a nest! How difficult can it be… I mean, even a blue tit can do it!
We started by rummaging around the school grounds to see if we could gather some materials…. then tried to start by weaving a small circle to start us off. It took a lot of concentration and was surprisingly difficult.
After much weaving and arranging, our piles of sticks started to look a little like nests!
We then collected some dried grass and leaves to line our nests. As time ran out, some of us gently lifted up our nests and placed them in the trees… they looked pretty good actually!
We were surprised at how hard it was and have a lot more respect for the birds… it is certainly not as easy as it looks!
