What a lovely story from John Stokes at the Eastern Courier.
PRIMARY school students are providing a home for birds whose habitats were destroyed during the Goodwood rail redevelopment.
More than 75 trees were axed as part of the project to build an underpass separating the freight and passenger lines at Goodwood Junction.
Last month about 50 students from Goodwood and Black Forest primary schools took part in bird box building workshops at the Clarence Park Community Centre’s Men’s Shed.The boxes will include cameras so students can keep an eye on the birds.
Lyssie, 11, was looking forward to inspecting the boxes.
"We can see what’s living in there and if they’ve laid any eggs," she said.
The Transport Department and Unley Council will help install the bird boxes.
