The last event of the year for Caithness Countryside Volunteers was spent building bird boxes on Sunday morning Sunday 11 December. A total of 16 standard bird boxes were built at The Seadrift Centre at Dunnet. This event was the second phase of a larger project funded by the Caithness Partnership Environmental Fund Programme, sponsored by Scottish Natural Heritage and Highland Leader. Marina Swanson, Highland Council Countryside Ranger and event organiser said: Our volunteers are getting very good at wood work and have produced 16 solid bird boxes. The boxes will be distributed around the county to provide nesting sites for some of the smaller bird species. We are very grateful to the volunteers who regularly give up their time to help with environmental projects and to our funders who make these events possible.
