Birds Take Up New Homes

Nine eggs in the nest 2nd of May 2012

The Wye Valley AONB volunteers and the Youth Rangers were busy back in early spring creating new homes for hole nesting birds, such as blue, coal and great tit.

Some of the bird boxes have been taken up. We have fitted a nest box camera to this box which contains nine eggs. Keep checking back for new posts to check on the progress of this nest site and we will update you on the others.

The boxes were constructed by Volunteers and Youth Rangers using recycled materials; scrap wood, aluminium cans and old bicycle tyre inner tubes.
