In February 2021 twelve RSPB nest boxes were put up on trees in Froyle. These will provide more nesting opportunities for small birds around Froyle recreation ground and near the wildlife pond area. The ‘standard’ boxes are for birds such as blue tits and great tits. The open fronted are for robins and wrens typically.
The natural pale wood will soon weather and darken to be less visible and some will disappear from obvious view when the leaves are on the trees. Thanks to the local volunteers that helped and who worked during lockdown as individual households.
