Nest made of litter stirs eco-warrior (9)

A BUDDING eco-warrior is urging litter bugs to think twice about dropping rubbish, for the sake of local wildlife.

William Chico (nine), from New Waltham, felt so moved when he saw a pair of moorhens struggling to make a nest out of litter that he decided to write to the Grimsby Telegraph.

“I was just amazed,” said William.

“I think it is very sad that the birds were using horrible rubbish people have dropped to make a nest for their eggs.

“I was upset about it and decided to write to the Grimsby Telegraph to ask people to stop dropping rubbish and to take better care of the environment.”

William spotted the birds’ nest while walking with his dad along the River Freshney.

The Signhills Junior School pupil already has a keen interest in wildlife and the environment.

“It is very easy for people to put their rubbish in the bin instead of just dropping it on the floor,” he said.

“Things like crisp packets and wrappers can really harm the wildlife, like birds and fish.

This is sad when we find birds including litter in their nests. At least, wildlife recycles. I have found plastic strips in bird nests. Thanks to eco-warrior William Chico.
