Bird and Bat box project

Govan Men's Shed
John Affleck and Richard Cairns from the Men’s Shed, Govan, delivering the boxes

One of our current projects has been in conjunction with the Men’s Shed in Govan. The Men’s Shed have been making bird nesting boxes, and bat roosting boxes, and we’re working with the Countryside Rangers to identify the best locations for them inside the park.

The bird nesting boxes need to be placed to avoid strong sunlight and the wettest winds, and of course to keep them safe.

We need to be careful to that the bat roosts are warm and easily navigable, and well away from predators.

Fiona Greenlees, of the Countryside Ranger’s, has now taken delivery of the boxes.
