Build a bird box success


Needless to say the build a bird box event was that much of a success that we had to turn people away at 11.30. There was suppose to be a 10-12 session followed by a 1-3 session but boxes allocated for both sessions went in the morning session.
The ages participating were 4 years old to a very enthusiastic 80 year old granny.
Fun was had by all, both Tit boxes like the picture above and open fronted Robin boxes were made. 
Whilst many were hammering away we also made pine cone feeders for the birds, these are simple to make an consist of cramming lard and bird seed into a pine cone, which you then tie in a tree.
