Leylandii recycled

We are always on the lookout for ways to use the wood we have stacked up since cutting down the leylandii which used to grow across the front of the house. One idea was to build a bird house.

This started last year, when Colin drilled the first hole into the section of log.....


Then I took over to hollow it out


Over the last couple of days the finishing touches have been added


And today Colin put it in place up one of the poplar trees at the bottom of the garden.


It looks a very secure residence for some lucky little bird


So now we await the first residents.... hopefully!

It will be fascinating watching what happens.

I'm on the same mission... a couple of sparrow towers... but just take a look at the drill bit when I finish the blog entry. It is very good now for drilling round corners! Good luck with the boxes.
