May 2016: Macclesfield Big Bird Box Build – Victoria Park

Volunteer Leaders from Wildlife Explorers visited Victoria Park as part of the Macclesfield Big Bird Box Build. The park already had a Tawny Owl box and a couple of tit nest boxes, but there were plenty of sites to add additional nestboxes.

The boxes were built by volunteers at a public events and painted at Lime Walk Assessment and Rehabilitation Unit in Macclesfield.

Specialist nestboxes for treecreepers were also sited carefully with the hope that these boxes will be used during the next breeding season.

The project is funded by a mix of public donations, a crowdfunding campaign and a grant from Macclesfield Town Council. The Macclesfield Big Bird Box Build involves making and installing nestboxes across the Macclesfield area providing more opportunities for nesting birds, making our local environment richer in nature for everyone to enjoy.
