Using Endoscope cameras we check a variety of locations for breeding birds. We have helped install over 100 Boxes in the southside of Glasgow. Get in contact and come to a taster session to see if you think it might be for you. More details on each of our sites below. These projects are very community orientated so you will be expected to talk to anyone that shows an interest to explain what is being done. We do a range of other nest recording, including natural nest sites and a Sparrow project near Greenbank Gardens. More opportunities will become available to those who are most keen and reliable.
Skills: Basic knowledge of common bird species.
Time: Roughly a weekly check of your allocated boxes. Volunteers tend to get around 10 boxes.
Date: This project runs from March – August. It really depends on the species your monitoring. For Blue Tits and Great Tits it’s usually from April – June
Details: In the park there are over 60 boxes for species like Blue Tit, Great Tit, Robin, Stock Dove, Blackbird, and Spotted Flycatcher with plenty more not listed here! Some other species we expect to get are Treecreeper, Nuthatch, Dipper, Grey Wagtail, Tawny Owl, and Goosander.
