More Nest Boxes

Sunday, January 26th 2014

Members of the bird ringing team were out again replacing nest boxes on the training area.  The weather changed from blue sky to heavy downpours.  Sophie has just added the final touch to this nest box, a nice layer of sawdust.

Over the years that the nest boxes have been on the training area, 1010 Kestrels have been ringed and 759 Tawny Owls, adults and chicks, have been processed.  Let us hope that it is not too long before chicks like these are being found in the new nest boxes.
