How It Works

We are delighted to launch “ ADOPT-a-BOX “ for its 9th year. You have the exciting opportunity of making a direct contribution to the upkeep and welfare of the birds on our wonderful island in the heart of St. Ives.

To sponsor a bird box , all you have to do is download a form (DOWNLOAD HERE) select a box number, there are 28 to choose from, complete the form and send it with £10 to Julian Limentani, 4 Links Way, St Ives PE27 6DW.

You will receive – a photo of your box, a certificate, a map showing the location of your box on the island and you will have an opportunity to join me for a guided walk of the island in May to hopefully witness fledglings being fed and to enjoy the birdsong. I will also provide you with a report after the breeding season together with photographs. Details of the Map can be found here.

Sponsoring a bird box could also make a lovely gift.
