Grim Discovery

Glen was round the back of the wood shed yesterday trimming some of the shrubs when he noticed that one of the bird boxes on the trees was crooked. So he climbed up to straighted it out when he made a grim discovery.

It appears another animal, probably a woodpecker, has broken into the box to steal the babies inside. We've heard of woodpeckers getting in by enlarging the hole at the front but never through the side.


Sad to find this, this bird box will definately need to be re-built with thougher materials next year.
