Conservation Project

Scout Global Conservation Badge
All sections of the Group have been working towards their respective Conservation Badges.  This section of the website is to be written by them as part of their Badgework & Conservation projects.  It will ultimately include details of our conservation work at local Hilton Woods, local & Global Conservation issues, photo albums and more.


Members of the project team can submit content in this section after logging on.

Hilton Wood Birdbox Map

Ever wondered where all those birdboxes went? Scout Leader Tom sent us a helpful annotated satellite image showing all the location and the initials of the Scout or Cub that made the box.  Logged in members can get a copy with full names since some of the intials are duplicated.

Hilton Wood Birdbox Survey 2011

As part of our Conservation project in Hilton Wood we made birdboxes and put them up around the wood.  Over the breeding season the boxes were regularly checked for activity with the help of the Tayside Ringers (who are licenced to inspect birdboxs - disturbing nesting wild birds without a license is an offence).  Here are the results of this year's Birdbox Surveys.   A big thank you to all the cubs and scouts who helped make 2011 a bumper year for our bird boxes, with the number of young practically double that for 2010!
