Homes for our feathered friends
Hot off the heels of the ants post comes more good news for Mabley Green's birds. Thanks to the RSPB, muf and the amazing woodworking skills of the kids at Gainsborough Primary School, we now have a set of locally made bird boxes, built especially for the birds in our area. There are three boxes now gracing the trees of Mabley Meadow - one at the front by the road, and more two further back. The boxes are a fantastic addition to the meadow so let's hope the birds agree.
All three boxes were hung with tender loving care, and probably in the most ridiculous, foolhardy way possible. So while the pictures below are kind of entertaining, it's probably best not to use them as a guide if you're going to do this yourself.
