National Nest Box Week

As part of our contribution to our local area 10 new boxes were installed in the Luddenden Valley this morning with AT (after seeking permission from the landowner last year) - thank you.
Nearly all H & S adhered to !!
We just hope for some good results this summer as most of the previous boxes are well past there sell-by date.

Not a lot of time for birding this morning though a great looking Green Woodpecker was fantastic to see close to. Also a few Brambling along with Nuthatch, Bullfinch and Common Buzzard over near Jerusalem Farm area.
Thanks to CBCG for funding 4 of the nest-boxes and the other 6 funded through grapevine funds so far received along with 10 more boxes already on order  to be used in other areas of the valley.
Thanks for all the support.
