Tranisiton Year Project 2016

20160308_134826 (600 x 337)After a hugely successful project last year, this year Tony Keneally is working with Transition Year Student in Millstreet Community School again this year. This years project is about the study of Barn Owl and Kestrel in the area of Millstreet. As part of this project the Transition Year Class constructed 2 Nest boxes for each species. The first 2 boxes will be erected in undisclosed locations to maximise the probability of these two very solitary birds, nesting in the boxes so an in-depth study can carried out regarding the birds. The second 2 boxes, we require the publics assistance. If you have seen a Barn Owl or Kestrel in your area could you please contact us as we would really like to erect these Nesting Boxes in an area where these birds have been seen. Contact us via email @ millstreettidytown@gmail.com Facebook or twitter. Alternatively here on the website. We look forward to the project that will be submitted by the Transition Year Students and as last year the project chosen by Tony Keneally will be submitted with our National entry this year.
