Picture of a brightly coloured bird box
From my sitting room window I can see that the birds are starting to pair up and a blackbird was collecting nesting material- sadly it disappeared into a neighbour's garden. A pair of blue tits has investigated our bird box.
So that reminded me of the 27 bird boxes that the Parish Council arranged to put up in the parish. We have had a couple of reports of birds visiting some of the boxes. For example in Vicarage Fields by the Glebe Road footpath.
So as you walk about the parish please take a moment to watch the bird boxes and please let us know if you see birds visiting the boxes. We will then put the information up on the website for us all to enjoy. In these dark days we all need to find reasons to smile.
The boxes are in the following locations- Vicarage Fields, De Vere Close, Mitchell Close playarea, the Cemetery, Village Sign area and Daintree Green.
Please send your sightings to the Webmaster to the firstname.lastname@example.org
Please give us some details about the bird box such as location and style of decoration.
