National Nest Box Week takes place every year from 14th to 21st February. The week aims to provide breeding birds with nesting sites, by encouraging people to put up nest boxes in their garden. Breeding birds are struggling to find natural nest sites because trees are being cut down and nooks and crannies in old buildings are repaired over winter. Taking part in the week will help our native birds.

Price: £5 per box.

Age Group: Minimum age for this event is 7 years old. Children must be supervised by an accompanying adult.
