Home Sweet Home for nesting birds

A comprehensive survey of the breeding birds of Rawcliffe Meadows is being undertaken for the first time this year. Final results will be available later in the summer but this map indicates the territories occupied by Great Tit, one of our most numerous breeding species.



Of the 24 territories, 8 pairs are using nest boxes in the Copse – including this one with its own name plate!

Another pair are making use of this rusty old gate post – not the most picturesque residence but home sweet home for a hungry brood of youngsters!
