Protecting your birdboxes from predators.
Following the destruction or our bird box and the blue tit chicks within by a woodpecker, one of the Lancashire Schools' Web Team found this very helpful article. I hope it helps others. We are going to repair ours shortly and hopefully we'll get a second clutch later on in the summer.

Woodpecker (and squirrel) hole enlargements can also be reduced by applying an aluminium plateto the front of the bird box... with a hole cut into it in the appropriate place
Contact your local senior school tech dept for help!
or buy one of these: Bird Nest Box Plate
or here: CJ WildBird Foods - Nest Box Plates
these are good too: CJ WildBird Foods - Nest Box Guardian... although we put the aluminium on first as our squirrels demolish plastic if they're in the mood.
I hate squirrels... chewed their way into our roof and did a lot of damage

That's the solution my brother-in-law uses in remotest Derbyshire - I think 'quite near the town centre' Kent may not approve!
