Bird Box bid

Last year’s junior school council put in a successful bid to FDPS who kindly bought this brilliant bird box for all the junior children to enjoy. It comes kitted out with a camera which means that the images from inside the box can be watched live in our whiteboards. With spring coming up we’re bound to be in for a treat/tweet!
