Operation Broken Feather – Temporary Exhibit

Operation Broken Feather – Temporary Exhibit

Have you heard of a Corncrake? The Corncrake is one of Scotland’s rarest birds, often hard to spot as they spend most of their time hidden in tall grass or reedbeds!

From the 27th February – 15th April 2024 visitors to Aberdeen Science Centre can check out our newest temporary exhibit and help Secret Agent Corncrake discover why the noisy yet secretive Corncrakes are disappearing from Scotland!

This interactive exhibition has been masterminded by RSPB Scotland as part of the Corncrake Calling project with support of the National Heritage Lottery Fund. It was co-designed by SF+SH with students from Lochgelly High School, The Glasgow Academy, Berwickshire High School, Castlehead High School, St. Joseph’s Academy & Banff Academy.

Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Corncrake Calling is a new four year project to save these small brown tawny members of the rail family.
