Working party on the Wenlock Edge nest boxes

Monday 16th February 2015 :

Along with the National Trust and Wenlock Edge Community Wildlife Group Linda and I went round the lower and middle loops. Repairs were very much needed - new fronts following squirrel and woodpecker damage, new lids and new hangings. Upwards of 25% of boxes in need of some kind of repair.

Birds seen and heard : Marsh Tit, Nuthatch, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Buzzard

A rare Mistle Thrush caught

James caught this bird in his garden, along with some Siskin and Lesser Redpoll.
