Robert Till - April 2016

Tuesday, 12 April 2016

Robert's demonstration was very interesting and enjoyed by all.

He showed us how to make a bird nesting box with a rounded bottom; hollowed out of one large piece of a tree branch.  He also made a removable top to fit on the hollowed piece so that it could be opened and cleaned after the nesting season is over.

All members present thought it had been an enjoyable evening and would look forward to seeing more demonstrations by Robert in the future.
