We're helping give half a million birds a home this autumn winter to shelter them from the cold. Can you help?
There is a shortage of natural nesting sites, which is thought to be one of the major factors behind the decline of some of our once most-common birds. By putting up nest boxes, such as this, which replicates a bird's natural nesting preferences, you can encourage them to breed near your home.
A practical project that will stimulate creativity and encourage an interest in the natural world. All parts are custom made and the nail holes are already drilled, so it just takes a hammer, a Phillips screwdriver and little time to assemble. Clear instructions make it easy for children to take the lead, with just a little adult supervision.
Once built the children can express their imagination and creativity by decorating the box with paint or markers, making each box unique and something for them to identify with over time. Place in a quiet, sheltered spot in the garden and wait to see if a Robin, Wren or Pied Wagtail will raise a family in it!
