September 2015 Open Day – Join us making bird boxes

Thanks to everyone who came along – here are some pictures from the day

For this month’s Open Day, 1.00 – 4.00 pm, Saturday September 26th, we’ve bought 20 flat pack bird boxes, half with 25 mm holes suitable for smaller birds, such as blue tits, and the rest with 32mm holes for birds such as sparrows and nuthatches.

So, as well as just looking round, maybe spotting the autumn fungi

why not join us, either sponsoring one of the boxes to go up in the reserve, or making one to take back to your garden.  If you sponsor a box, we will keep an eye on it, and let you know when it is occupied next year, and invite you to come back to see.

We think this would be a fun thing for parents to do with kids, but the advice from LB Lewisham’s Ecology officer is that it is a little bit fiddly for young kids and they definitely need adult help and two people to screw together.

We have ordered the boxes from The Nest Box Company Ltd, and will be looking for £12 per box to cover total costs.
