Wokingham Action Project

 

Wokingham Elfins and Pioneers are running a project to improve their local meadow for everyone that uses it. They’ve planned what they want to do with advice from a local conservation group ‘Friends of the Emmbrook’ in order to make the area look nicer, encourage wildlife and to make the area more interesting for young people. 

Make a bird box

We did this with our venturer group

I pre prepared the components by sawing up some excess floorboards we had

The venturers then nailed it all together, producing one bird box each

See: http://www.bto.org/nnbw/make.htm

Nb I reckon the base should be 150x 150
