Nearly there!

With the help of Shrewsbury Schools Ornithology Group we got the sides on the bird hide, Radio Shropshires Kate Tebby came to record the event. We used offcuts from some recent sawmilling to clad the hide, it is satisfying using up what would otherwise be wasted. All the hammering and chainsawing didn't deter the birds that have already found the feeding station, Nuthatch and a large Tit flock were present for most of the afternoon and a Sparrowhawk and Great Spotted Woodpecker were heard nearby.
The recording will be played on Radio Shropshire on Saturday morning between 8am and 9am.
We just need to get the roof on tomorrow and then it can be used by everyone from dedicated bird watchers to casual observers who are out for a walk.
