Staff from TCV and children from local schools

TCV supported the Big Garden Birdwatch at the end of January with an event at the Ecos Centre, Ballymena.

Hosted by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, pupils from Ballymena Primary School made 30 nest boxes for birds in the local area. Fifty five pupils helped to construct the nest boxes which they took back to the school to be put up for the birds, just in time for nesting season.

The pupils also enjoyed a guided walk around the site and spotted a number of different bird species which they identified and recorded on their Big Garden Birdwatch sheets.

The event was one in a series of Birdwatch events organised by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council.
