Arc Updates: Paper nesting boxes….
Hand-made bird boxes (40 of them) were installed this week. These deluxe residences have inbuilt thermal regulation and colonisable external features. These are hand-made units formed from a mix of natural concrete and paper pulp which helps to regulate the inside temperature. We will monitor each box to record which species use which design as birds don’t always read the rule-book when they choose their nest site!! We have installed tree-creeper, open-fronted and boxes with a variety of hole sizes. We are also hoping that the textured surface will also attract micro-flora and fauna. Watch this space….
