A GENEROUS donation has enabled bird boxes to be installed in National Trust parkland at Croome, near Pershore.

“We are very grateful to Severn Waste Services for providing so many high quality nest boxes, particularly those designed for owls and kestrels,” said Craig Welsby, Croome’s assistant ranger.

A total of 20 bird boxes were funded by Severn Waste Services through the Landfill Communities Fund and these will provide safe nesting sites for many years.

Mr Welsby liaised with two regular birders who volunteer at Croome and decided on key locations around the parkland to site them. 

The boxes, which are all different shapes and sizes, will cater for birds such as tits, robins, wrens, wagtails, starlings, kestrels and owls.
