National Bird Box Week

Wiltshire Wildlife Trust's project, 'Wild Connections', held the second of its Conigre Mead events on Thursday 18th February, where nearly 40 people including lots of enthusiastic children came along to make bird boxes during National Bird Box Week.

The children, with the help of the adults, enjoyed a morning in the chilly sunshine building bird houses, some of which were put up in the churchyard and Conigre Mead Nature Reserve, and some they took home for their own gardens.

We will be monitoring the bird boxes on the reserve during the coming weeks.
