Our feathered friends need you…….
Nestboxes are becoming vital for breeding birds. Due to tidier gardens and woodland areas, and modern buildings with fewer nooks and crannies, many birds will struggle to find a suitable nesting site for the breeding season. The population of some bird species has decreased and the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) is now calling for homeowners to put up more nestboxes for declining garden birds.
In our fun, hands-on virtual workshop, guests make their very own cozy birdhouse to provide a safe space for birds to shelter in the winter and breed in the spring. We’ll post out kits in advance of the activity containing pre-cut and pre-drilled 100% FSC wooden panels, hammer, screwdriver, hanger and all fixings required. Hosted by our expert, guests will be guided through each step, assembling the birdbox piece by piece. We’ll also give tips on the best places to put them, how to maintain them and how to attract visitors.
As a bonus task, we’ll also show guests how to make natural birdfeeders. At the end of the activity guests will have a beautiful, natural, hand made birdhouse that they can place in their garden or outdoor surroundings, for their own “Springwatch”, or to give away as a gift.
