It comes as part of the Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes’ commitment to supporting wildlife on developments and celebrating its national partnership with the RSPB.

Each entrant of the quiz will be able to learn more about a range of birds as they’re asked to match common species to the homes that suit their needs.

Jan Ruston, sales director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “We always try to give nature a home at our developments, creating new habitats as part of our long-term partnership with the RSPB. Alongside National Nest Box Week, hopefully this quiz can help get all generations involved in learning more about wildlife and nature.”

When looking to place a nest box in a garden, it’s important to find a sheltered, shady location, preferably facing north through east to south-east to avoid prevailing winds and strong direct sunlight. Nest boxes also need to be kept out of reach of cats and other predators.
