National Nest Box Week
Staff and Students at The Walled Garden Project
will be taking part in this yearly event, running from 14th to 21st
February. National Nest Box Week (NNBW) aims to encourage everyone
to put up nest boxes in their local area, in order to promote and
enhance biodiversity and conservation of our breeding birds and
wildlife. This year we will be adding five more bird boxes into
Norton Mere Woodlands. Staff and Student will monitor and record
their use, then feed this information back to The British Trust
for Ornithology. Why not get involved....visit www.bto.org
