Nestbox Building

Wednesday 19 February


Price: £5 per nestbox (£4 RSPB members); normal reserve admission charges apply for non-members

It's National Nestbox Week this February half term, and we're in need of some new nestboxes to put up in trees around Burton Mere Wetlands.

We're inviting families to get involved and have some fun helping us to build them, then chat to our wardens about how we choose where to put them in our woodland and farmland. We number all of our nestboxes so if you like, we'll be able to let you know what makes its home in your box this spring! All tools and materials will be provided, just come along in appropriate clothing for the weather.

We have a limited number of nestbox kits, so please give us a quick call on 0151 353 2720 to reserve one in advance to avoid disappointment, then drop in any time between 10.30am and 3.30pm to build it with the team. Allow a minimum of 30 minutes to build a box, and longer if you wish to chat with the team about nestboxes for your own garden.

Take away the RSPB nestbox kit instructions to make your own for your garden or outdoor space, or browse the wide selection in our shop on site if you'd prefer to buy one.
