​The boys are enjoying the national Citizen Bird project​ with their own nest boxes in the Prep School's grounds. The boxes are supplied by David Kelly, father of William, who is involved with the project. Electronic equipment has been added to the boxes which enable us to see videos inside and weighing scales which record activity in the boxes. Birds coming and going or growing chicks will affect the weight. 

Very excitingly, the box in the school garden has a nest and eggs of a Great Tit which have now hatched and are growing rapidly, you can see them being fed and how they have changed. They are nearly ready to fledge.
