The annual event encourages the promotion and active building of bird boxes in Britain. The week was originally organised by the British Trust for Ornithology, Britain’s leading bird research charity.

St John’s Garden Centre will celebrate from 15-16 February with a bird talk by a representative from Devon Birds. The talk will discuss how we can all make a difference to birds in our area.

There will also be a colouring competition for children for a chance to win a camera nest box.

From 10 am–4pm on Saturday and 10.30 am–4pm on Sunday At St John’s Garden Centre, Barnstaple, EX32 9DD
