Bird Nest Box Building

Encourage birds into your garden by building a nest box for your feathered friends, just in time for nesting season!  

Bird nest boxes are a great place to lay eggs and rear young without the threat of predators and provide vital shelter on chilly winter nights!  

Join us this Half-Term for National Nest Box Week and we’ll guide you through building your own bird box in this Family Friendly event. Learn about different kinds of nest box and choose which birds you’ll build yours for! We supply the pre-cut materials you assemble the box.

We'll be set up outside the RSPB Radipole Lake Discovery Centre from 10am-2pm.

No need to book, just turn up on the day. £8.50 for each Bird Box Kit. Supplies are limited so come along early. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
