Over the last few years the Friends group have put up dozens of nest boxes of various designs on trees in the Park. These have been made and kindly donated by individual and groups. Have you ever wondered how many are used? This is a difficult question to answer without climbing back up ladders to inspect them. However the gales in October knocked one bird box  out of a Whitebeam tree on the eastern side of the park. The contents showed that this had been used recently with a large about of nest material (mostly grass) inside.

The box was slightly damaged but has now been cleaned out and repaired and will be fixed back up in the tree in time for spring and the new nesting season.
