Levens Own Springwatch

As spring turns into summer we have a selection of birds nesting in, on and around school.

Right by the front door we have a pair of Collared Doves. Less than a metre away from the comings and goings they have just hatched two eggs. There are several House Sparrow nests, one in the wall and one under the roof of Scafell Class. High above the office window there are three House Martin nests with lots of visiting adults. One has youngsters peering out! Whilst there are no nesting Swallows on school this year they are next door and regularly swoop across the playground and chatter away on the phone wire. The one thing that doesn’t have any nesting birds is the nest box! It is full of bumblebees! Nature has a home on Levens School.
