Standard

Very close to the former Olympic Village which is now called East Village,

there are some lovely parks and many green spaces.

This is 15 minutes from my home away.

On my walk I found this today:

East Village and the RSPB ( Royal Society for the protection of birds)

have joined up with local carpenter Pete Bagg

to create 10 London skyline inspired bird boxes

to help bring birds back to the capital.

 

birdboxes (15)

 

Wonderfully done.

I have a picture of the original London Landmark

combined with the bird box.

See for yourself.

What a fantastic idea.

The boxes are displayed for one month here

before each box is moved to its permanent home

at green locations around the area.

Let the birds come…..

  1. I love the idea. Art, functionality, beauty, helping other creatures, and bringing birds back to the area all built into this creative project! Thank you for sharing this post, Ute.

  2. Amazing my dear Ute!! I love this!! We have many different birds in our forest behind our house and I so enjoy their songs!

    Have a happy day!
