Nest Box Giveaway

I had great day at Warter Primary School yesterday giving away nest boxes to the children there. I gave away 117 boxes - one for each family at the school and one for each class to put up in the school garden so that they can all watch birds nest there.
The children were all so enthusiastic about getting one it was such a joy to share that. I've already had an email from one family who put their box up as soon as they got home yesterday afternoon!
The giveaway was part of my long-term efforts to help boost bird populations across the Yorkshire Wolds and follows a similar donation to Leavening Primary School in 2010.


  1. Brilliant idea. Having seen my first 2012 Ladybird (not a Harlequin) in town yesterday in the sunshine, I am wondering whether there are any Ladybirds in my Ladybird house, and if so, whether they are beginning to stir ...

  2. P.S. Forgot to say what wonderful wildlife cards (lions, tigers, puffins, lemur etc.) I bought when we visited your studio gallery nearly a year ago.
