National Nest Box Week

Let’s find more homes for birds! Nesting season starts in February, so celebrate National Nest Box Week from the 14th – 22nd and help Britain’s wildlife. With the help of these brilliant online resources for families., children can learn all about birds, find out why nest boxes make a difference, and how to install or make your own. If you already have a box, you can take a short survey about the birds that use it. You might also think about ways to help other wildlife, such as hedgehogs, dormice, bats or more!
