Bird Boxes

Aren't we lucky - Rod has made these lovely bird boxes for us. One for blue tits and one for sparrows. The RSPB report that there is a severe decline in the UK house sparrow population, recently estimated as dropping by 71 per cent between 1977 and 2008 with substantial declines in both rural and urban populations. However, whilst the decline in England continues, there is evidence that the population in Scotland is showing some recent improvement. We hope that our sparrow box will encourage this lovely little bird to thrive in East Haven! Many thanks to Rod and also to  Dave Christie Joiners for the wood.
