Same again Sunday, a whole day erecting nest boxes, 4 more today taking the weekend tally to 7 in total. Only another 13 to go, at this rate I should be done by middle of April!!!!!!!! On first impressions you would think 7-8 boxes could easily be put up in a single day.........oh how wrong I was, good job I'm not on piece work otherwise I’d be bloody skint! I must admit though, a quality hour or so was
wasted taken up in the local country inn sampling a couple of pints of Guinness. This went down really quite well whilst reflecting on what a fantastic job was being done.......NOT!!!
Yours truly up another tree!!! This was obviously before the beer as there is no way I could possible pose like that on a ladder after a couple of pints!!!
Sunday - Box No 1, in an apple tree.
Sunday - Box No 2, on a an old fallen down willow tree, carried the ladder across 2 very large fields to this site and ended up putting the box up 4ft from the ground........what a plonker!
Production has really slowed now......"hic".....post beer!!!!!
Sunday - Box No 3, on the side of an old ash tree, this site produced 2 young in 2009
Sunday - Box No 4, again on an old ash tree, it will be a minor miracle if this box is still up!
Obviously the exact site locations will not be divulged but needless to say they are not far from the pub!!!!!
Many thanks to Daz Sibley, my drinking and box putting up partner for the day.
