Staff and patients at the Solar Centre are gearing up for National Nest Box Week next week.

The centre have enjoyed visits from a whole host of bird species since introducing nest boxes to their garden.

Nurse Morag McKay Ellison said: “All our service users benefit from this scheme.”

National Nest Box Week is organised by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) and urges people around the UK to put up nest boxes in their local areas, not only to protect the wildlife we already have, but to encourage even more birds to brood in our backyards.
