Nesting Boxes a hit!
In a recent survey of nesting boxes across the city it was found that 70% had been used for breeding. Evidence exists that a variety of species call the boxes home; these include lorikeets, brush-tail possums, eastern rosellas, parrots and kookaburras. The boxes are also well used by bees and spiders although these are not considered to be welcome guests and those used in this way have had to be refurbished. This is a welcome programme that could easily be expanded.
