Half term is just around the corner and the parents of Sunny Colch are no doubt flapping their wings and wondering how to keep all within the nest happy. Tip: the early bird catches the worm. Which should be enough bird-related talk to signify that a feather related half term event is taking place up at High Woods Country Park.
The Spring Bird Box Build does exactly as it said on the, um, box:
“Children can join the Ranger on Thursday 16th February to help celebrate National Bird Box Week. This is a chance for them to take part in a fact filled bird trail with fun and games along the way. Afterwards, they can make their very own bird box to take home, then watch and see if it attracts a visit from a feathered friend in the garden!”
Watch out for the random white drops from the sky. We’re not talking about the possibility of snow, either.
“The session runs from 10:30am – 12:30pm and tools and bird box kits will be provided. This activity is suitable for ages 5+ and children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets cost £5 per child from the Visitor Information Centre and booking for this popular activity is essential.”
Bookings can be made online at www.visitcolchester.com or by calling 01206 282920.
Probably not suitable for birdbrain bloggers.
