Building for Birds

Friday, February 24th 2017

Another day of the half-term holidays and another busy day of family fun at Foxglove – this time Building for Birds!

We took a walk to have a look at some of the many bird boxes at Foxglove:

Some children were using hammer and nails for the first time, but with a little bit of help from their parents/grandparents/guardians/us  they all made a bird box to take home.

We then all headed indoors to build bird feeders. We make seed feeders from old plastic bottles…

…and pine cone fatballs.

It was a fun filled morning!

Thank you to Peter and to Charlie for helping us with running the event and to Colin who was looking after our birds at Foxglove; filling the feeders for the weekend and taking this one for repair.

On another note, as of this coming Monday (27th Feb 2017) for three weeks, we are expecting some work to be done on the access gate to Foxglove so there may be some disruption. Watch this space for more information as we have it.
