🦅 National Nest Box Week 2018. 🦅 Encourage children to get involved with our ‘paint your own nest boxes’ for £4.99. Valentine’s Day 2018 saw the start of the 21st annual National Nest Box Week (NNBW), in which people across Britain are encouraged to put up a nest box and provide a family home for our birds. Did you know that mid-February is the time that birds across the country begin to pair up, or get back together for the forthcoming breeding season, and the search to find a safe place in which to build a nest and raise a family begins in earnest? Over 20 different bird species regularly use nest boxes: from Blue Tits, which use the ‘standard’ small-hole type of nest box, to birds like the Barn Owl that use a much larger nest box with a much larger entrance hole. #rspb #nationalnestboxweek #birds

I had the massive pleasure of coming across a male Sparrow Hawk on the hunt this week, and all the better for it being on my local patch. Sadly he wasn’t successful in finding his breakfast whilst he was with me but this was such an unexpected treat I still haven’t stopped smiling yet. I found him in an ancient woodland site I volunteer for @wild.london at as part of The Great North Wood project. Definitely check out the project if you’re local.
