Secret birthday project 2: The nesting box

28 Feb

The second half of dad’s birthday present was a bird box (!) Storm and I built it together during National Nestbox Week in a free workshop at Arnos Vale.

Apparently birds are uber fussy, so our box, with its 32mm hole, is suitable for house sparrows, tree sparrows, and nuthatches only.

Storm only hit my thumb with a hammer once, so I figure I got off pretty lightly! You can find out how to make your own nestbox here.

Dad was really chuffed, and I was really glad to give him a present that should bring happiness to him (and the birds) for many years.

Third secret birthday project coming soon!
