About the Event
The wildlife visiting your garden in the Spring will be on the lookout for shelter from the cold and a place to breed - and you can help.
Wild Maidenhead and Bisham Nest Box Group are teaming up for this special annual Homes For Wildlife event at Braywick Nature Centre on Saturday 19th March 2022. There will be a range of boxes to see and buy for garden birds, owls, kestrels, swifts, hedgehogs bees and bats. There will also be advice about helping bees in your garden. Maidenhead Veg Growers will have a 'Seed Swap' table so bring any wildflower or other seeds you don't need and swap for ones that you do, or just pick up seeds from those donated.
This is a great event for families - the Bisham Nest Box Group will be running a tit box assembly operation, so there will be lots of hammering going on!
The Bisham Nest Box Group team are all local volunteers and their boxes are sold at cost price.
There will be experts on hand to answer your questions about siting, observing and maintaining boxes and also about our local wildlife in general.
Refreshments including homemade cake will be available. There will be a suggested £3 donation from all those coming (refundable if you buy a box!) to support the work of Wild Maidenhead. .
