Oystercatcher Nest Boxes

Last year the Oystercatcher nested in an Old Post that had rotted at the top. The adults had eggs and young when they were disturbed. With this in mind I contacted the Owner of the Lake and got permission to build some Oystercatcher nest boxes and last Saturday they were situated on the Lake on the other side of the Lake.

Please remember Lake is Private Land rented to the Fishing Club. The Public Path only runs along the fence line of Goodenbergh up to the Cottages and Stables.

Nest boxes will be monitored from the site near my Van. and if any are visited and used I will keep you informed. Oystercatchers are renowned for leaving the nest when they are disturbed. If you do see any activity from the site please let me know..

Thanks for your help.
