RBBC’s Best dressed nest

If you’re looking for an opportunity to show off your artistic skills, enter RBBC’s Best dressed nest competition!

RBBC has teamed up with Men in Sheds, Surrey Wildlife Trust and local artists to build and design 20-40 new bird boxes which will be installed around the lakes. The boxes will be fitted in time for nesting season in February 2018. Not only will the local bird life benefit from the new homes, but the local bat life will also be able to take advantage.

We’re looking for artists, art students, designers or those who just simply love to draw to create a bird box design for a new feature coming to Earlswood Lakes in 2018. We’re opening up the competition to residents of Reigate & Banstead and have included two categories with spaces for two winners in each. Ages 11-19 and 20+
