January 16th: Put wood shavings in the box
|Not much activity so far, and after reading on forums it seems there is some advice from the RSPB suggesting that people put some wood shavings in their box.
|To quote: "by placing dry hay or wood shavings in the box before putting it back outside, you can provide a warm and sheltered place for birds, and sometimes even small mammals, to use during the winter.".
|I have placed a couple of handfuls into my nestbox today. Hope it works...
|In the meantime the number of siskins visiting the garden has increased to 6 !
|Also a welcome sighting is a female pied wagtail, who we suspect is one of the same one's that we had last year.|
