National Nest Box Week

Give a bird a home
National Nest Box Week!
14-21 February 2014

 

From 14-21 February it will be National Nest Box Week, a chance for you to encourage birds in your garden to come home to roost!

Organized by the British Trust for Ornithology or BTO, the week is an important one for all the brilliant birds we have in the UK, from Robins to Owls!

The idea behind the week is to get us all to put up nest boxes in our local areas, not only to protect the wildlife we already have, but to encourage even more birds to brood in our backyards!

National Nest Box Week started in 1997. As more trees are cut down, birds lose their homes, so putting up boxes is a great way of helping our winged friends - and it's thought there's now between 5 to 6 million boxes across the UK!

And don't worry if you've never put up a bird box before, at the official National Nest Box Week website, there are lots of hints and tips to get you started, as well as information on how to monitor the box and see what kind of wildlife you're likely to attract!

See in-store prior to the event for exceptional Birdcare Offers!
