National Nest Box Week

Monday 6th February 2017

National Nest Box Week takes place each year from 14 to 21 February. NNBW aims to encourage everyone to put up nest boxes in their local area to promote and enhance biodiversity and conservation of our breeding birds and wildlife.

Please get involved with National Nest Box Week this half-term and help the birds by building your own bird box or feeder at one of our visitor centres.
