Putting up bird boxes

Towards the end of 2012 we purchased ten bird boxes from a local social enterprise, “YORLEX”, who provide activities and life skills for adults with learning and other disabilities. We chose two types: the usual ones which attract birds such as coal tits and and great tits, and ones with open fronts for birds such as robins. Eight of the boxes have so far been placed in town, mainly in locations where OIB have previously been working. There is also now a plan to place another ten in the local parks, Memorial Garden and other town centre locations.
