Paper nest boxes!!

Take a look at these and-made bird boxes installed this week. These deluxe residences have inbuilt thermal regulation and colonisable external features. They are hand-made units formed from natural concrete and paper pulp, a bespoke mix which helps to regulate the inside temperature. We will monitor each box to record which species use which design; birds don’t always read the rule-book when they choose their nest site!  To give them the widest choice possible, we have installed a variety of boxes with different entrances and one specifically aimed to support tree-creepers. The experimental textured surfaces will also hopefully attract micro-flora and fauna. Watch this space….
