Nest­box build­ing

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

WILDLIFE en­thu­si­asts are en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to help pro­vide some per­ma­nent homes for our feath­ered friends.

The Mac­cles­field RSPB Wildlife Ex­plor­ers has raised more than £500 to fund the Mac­cles­field Big Bird Box Build pro­ject, which aims to pro­vide nest boxes for birds across the county, in­clud­ing Danes Moss Na­ture Re­serve, Teggs Nose, Tyther­ing­ton Woods and Sy­camore Wood.

And now they need will­ing vol­un­teers to help build the nest­boxes, with a spe­cial build­ing event on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 28, be­tween 10.30am and 12.30pm out­side the Home­base Store at Lyme Green Retail Park, Mac­cles­field.

Tina Hanak, group leader, said: “Af­ter our suc­cess­ful Crowd­fund­ing cam­paign, Mac­cles­field RSPB Wildlife Ex­plor­ers have raised over £500 to fund their Mac­cles­field Big Bird Box Build pro­ject. The group are now are ready to start build­ing a se­lec­tion of new homes for wild birds across Mac­cles­field.”

There’s still time to do­nate funds to the pro­ject. All money raised goes to in­creas­ing the num­ber of nest­boxes.
