Bird spotting at Sizewell B
The Sizewell B visitor centre welcomed dozens of children during half term to celebrate National Nest Box Week
Children made bird boxes to take home and bird feeders to hang in their gardens to give the local wildlife a winter treat. If that wasn’t enough bird related fun they were also able to make flying finger puppets!
The children had great fun bird spotting and tested their knowledge by identifying some of the native garden birds of England.
Sarah Osborne, Visitor Centre Coordinator, said: “It was great to welcome so many children to the visitor centre this half term. We find the centre is a real community hub of activity and it was lovely to see the children have fun whilst doing so much good for local wildlife.”
Clare Hinchliffe, local resident from Aldeburgh, brought her children to the event. Clare said: “This is our first visit to Sizewell B and I wanted to show the children what is on our doorstep. We came to make bird boxes but have found it a good way to learn about nuclear power. We will come back again as it’s a really nice venue to bring children and find out what goes on at the power station.”
Sizewell B has a Biodiversity Award in recognition of its work with Suffolk Wildlife Trust and is set in 684 hectares of land which is a haven for wildlife and nature lovers.
