Down on Boscastle Harbour last Friday you might have heard the sound of sawing wood, hammer on nails, interspersed the muffled cry of pain from one of the ranger team. It wasn’t one of our team bonding days, but a bird box and bee hotel building event we had for half term. Armed with Cornish Douglas fir bird box kits, an assortment of drilled wood, twigs and old tree guards we decamped on Boscastle harbour for the day. A lively event saw Mums and Dads carrying the fruits of their children’s labour around a couple of hours after their construction. As part of National bird box week (more of a lucky coincidence than a cunning plan!) the event saw lots of bird boxes and bee hotels that will hopefully provide accommodation for a lucky few in the coming years.
