Norfolk and Norwich Festival - London Fieldworks in Eaton Park

Discovered that the nest box city we saw this Thursday in Eaton Park US part of the Norfolk and Norwich festival. It is  the work of London Fieldworks and is called 'Spontaneous City'. Also have installations at Cow Tower and Waterloo Park. It is meant to raise awareness of the ecological and cultural value of urban green spaces. Did it for US and worth seeking out. Shame they won't be staying.

Nest box city masterpiece in Eaton Park, Norwich

Went for a walk with my kids in Eaton Park on our way to get an ice cream. The cafe was closed but my son spotted that there were loads of nest boxes in one of the trees. Really amazing to see this unexpected nest box city masterpiece. Well done whoever put this lot up. Made up for the lack of ice cream.

Nest box success!

After putting up a new nest box 2 years ago and it being ignored, the old one, held together by goodwill, is occupied by a Great Tit family!

Getting the washing in tonight and I heard the chicks chirping, and saw the parents going in and out with insects to feed them.

Will move the new nest box later in the year, and hopefully get 2 families moving into the garden next year.

Happy days.
