Youngsters learnt how to camouflage nests into the natural habitat.
Nature reserve warden, Eamonn Ritchie taught the children about different types of bird nests and how to care for birds.
He took the children out onto the reserve to look for birds nests and different species of bird.
The children helped him to make a large tawny owl box for the reserve and then had fun exploring a bird related treasure hunt.
