Build A Bird Box Challenge

Please join us for the challenge of building your own bird box or bird feeder for your garden. You may prefer to decorate an existing one for the challenge. Whatever your preference, this is a great opportunity to build something for the birds in your garden.

A great way to encourage more birds and also take part in the u3a BirdWatch initiative!

Making your own nest box can be simple and rewarding. So take a look at your garden to find that perfect bird-friendly spot that will entice your feathered friends over. You may prefer to create a window feeder instead or a stand-alone creation. Whatever your choice, get ready to spend endless hours enjoying the various species of birds that choose to nest or feed there.

You may already have some recycled materials that you could use. We would love to see your creations and invite you wholeheartedly to share your photographs and ideas with us.

We will publish a selection of bird box photographs onto this webpage over the coming weeks and months, so please fill out our online form.
