Birds of Centenary Woodland

Dan checking boxes at Centenary Woods

The Birmingham University nesting box scheme is being monitored by Dan and Jon for the second year, and while few boxes were occupied last year, probably because of late installation, indications so far suggest greater occupancy, although far from 100% take up.

Dan will provide further details as they arise.
