Nest boxes 2007

We hope to have an even more successful year with our nestboxes than last year. Our Nestboxes include a Terrace intended for House Sparrows (but Blue Tits like it) and an Open fronted box which we hope a Robin may use. We also have a Nestbox with a camera this year which has another pair of Blue Tits showing interest there! You can follow all posts through my main diary archive but I have also listed directly to posts published below.

    Hi again, Wildlife Gardener

    You have been busy this morning – how nice to see you visit my older posts.

    I always try to update my shortcut posts as I post new ones so it was quite sad when it came to posting the last ones on the Camera Nestbox.

    Hi, Shirl,

    Fantastic website - it must take some upkeep! Makes mine look a bit casual! Have bookmarked it so I can keep up to date.
