The Bird-box

This is our first solar-powered donation box and was commissioned by Kent Wild-Life Trust for their visitor centre near Maidstone. The tree with birds are inside a glass dome and the leaves of the tree are made of tiny solar panels used for sloar powerd wateches. When the public make their £1 donation, the bird eats out of their hand and the baby birds in the nest show their appreciation. The advantage of a solar powered box is there are no electric wires or sockets involved and it can be moved around easily to find the best sun-lit location. The visitor centre is in an old barn and is a lively place with exhibitons and school workshops.
