The snow over winter has reduced our 6ft high brambles to a little over ankle height in most places around the woodland.
So, to provide a little helping hand to our smaller feathered friends we are hanging bird boxes near areas that we observed birds nesting last year.
Olivia was delighted to hang the first of nine bird boxes.
To hang the boxes we have opted for nylon screws so as to not adversely damage the trees. A small whole is needed to be drilled, but we ensured we only went as deep as necessary to prevent damage to the core wood.
