Doing a great job there Andy , i have personally put up around 40 birds boxes and several owl boxes around the syd brook area in Eccleston over the years and had some goood results , but sadley most of the boxes have been damaged by grey squirrels , i have just started putting new boxes up with metal fronts to stop the squirrels .
regards gary.
