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.
