Lots of bird activity around the ash tree at the Fauna / Orchard crossroads this afternoon including blue tits exploring the tit box on the ash. Goldfinch also there.
Today Ian , Tony and Richard of the RSPB braved the cold and wind to put up several new nestboxes. I think that I can remember where we put them!
We have put them in places where they can be observed from the paths – here are some of the locations:
- There are tit boxes on the ash tree along the path to Cromwell Rd, on the willows alongside Lucy Brook which can be seen from this path east of the ash tree
- Bat boxes and a nest box near the junction of this path and the N end of the Orchard
- Additional tit boxes in the orchard itself.
So keep a look out over the coming months for activity and let us know what you see.
