Adopt A Bird Box

Over the last few years we have put up many different bird boxes, around the reserve, to help many species of birds find a place to nest during the nesting season and also a place to roost (sleep) in the cold winter months.

We are continuing with the scheme. This year (2019) the price is £10.00 for a wooden box and £15 for a concrete box

By adopting one of the boxes:

> You will adopt the box from March 1st until the end of February the next year. (e.g. 01/03/19 – 29/02/20)

> Your support will greatly contribute to allow us to provide and maintain suitable nesting boxes.

> Provide much needed food for the Bird Feeding Stations during the winter months to help the birds survive.

> You will receive an information pack with details about the bird box you have adopted, including a map of its location, information on what species has used the box & a certificate.

We cannot guarantee that your adopted box will be used during the nesting season as the birds decided where they want to nest.

If you would like to adopt a box please click here to request the “Adopt” form.

Once complete, please return it to the address provided on the form.

Thank you to everyone who has already adopted one.
