Bird Hide

I would like to thank Shrewsbury School 's Ornithology Group for their help today in getting our bird hide project underway. We cleared the area where the hide is going to be constructed and also a pathway that will link the hide to a well used footpath. It is hoped that the hide will be well used once constructed by both locals and visitors to the Edge, there will also be a Winter feeding station to help the birds through the cold months and also to offer good views from the hide. Chelmarsh Bird Ringers will hopefully carry out some bird ringing demonstrations so that members of the public can get closer and learn more about the birds. The hide will take shape over the next couple of months, i will keep updating on the progress here.

Once we had finished clearing the area of scrub there was still a little time before the group had to leave so we made a few bird boxes, some of which they took back to the school to put up in the grounds.
