Swift Conservation Effort in CETNS

Swift Conservation Effort in CETNS

Thanks to Castleknock Tidy Towns Committee, CETNS are part of a very exciting swift conservation project. Last year, a colony of small birds called swifts were discovered in Castleknock village. As the numbers of swifts are declining, Castleknock Tidy Towns Committee applied for funding for swift conservation measures. Four local schools were chosen to host nesting boxes. 2 swift nesting boxes have been installed beside the outdoor classroom in CETNS during the Easter holidays as part of a Castleknock swift conservation effort. These special nesting boxes will each house 3 pairs of swifts. The nest boxes have a calling system to attract swifts to move into CETNS. We can’t wait to welcome some feathered friends to our school! Read more green school news here -
