Elfed High School Outdoor Museum, Buckley


The Spring 2005 Issue of "Wildlife Matters", the newsletter of the Deeside Urban Wildlife Group states:


Jim would have loved this! The Elfed High School in Buckley has in its quadrangle a model of one of Buckley's former industries made by the late James Bentley, and donated by him to the school some years ago. In Spring last year I watched Great Tits disappearing down the top of the model's chimney. I couldn't believe that they would have nested there, but late in the year I watched eight fledglings appear. I am watching again to see if they return to use it this year.



Pip Perry added: "I think Jim Bentley would have had quite a chuckle over this use of his model."
