On the 2nd of March we ran a box workshop for the 1st Bruton Scout Pack. The Scouts were really amazing and showed real skill not only with their wood working skills, but also with their ability to work so well together. They made 5 Barn Owl boxes and 5 Kestrel boxes in less than 2 hours! I’m really pleased that each box has been inscribed with its makers name on the inside, so that I can report back to the guys once the boxes are installed with news of who’s occupying them.
I have continued to visit farmers and put up nestboxes throughout the winter, and this will continue as we move into spring, although the majority of boxes going up now will be in preparation for next year.
