Des Res

At the end of last year's nesting season I noted that a few of the nestboxes at Linacre were, to put it nicely, looking a bit worse for wear.

I contacted my friends at the Chesterfield RSPB Group, who very kindly, made me some new boxes to replace those that had been attacked by the Great-spotted Woodpeckers and Grey Squirrels and this morning I spent a few hours replacing the damaged boxes.

Des res!

I'll leave well along now and begin checking the boxes in April so that I can record the nesting attempts for the BTO's Nest Record Scheme.
