The Coppice16 Feb 2010 7:44PM Views : 1034 Unique : 431
I have decided that the woodland I now have sole access to, will be known as The Coppice
After carrying out the initial set up on Friday, I spent a couple of hours there yesterday, freezing my proverbials off.
I just stood and watched and realised that there is a tad of fine tuning needed.
The feeders etc; were being visited,although only intermittently.
A Great tit and a Blue tit were making the effort, plus a Robin and a Dunnock were hopping about on the ground.
I have a post to dig into the ground on Saturday to support a feeding table and also a couple of plastic dustbin lids to set up, to catch any rainwater.
It wasn't until I had a good look at things, that I realised that the main support rail I set up, is running away at an angle from my photography point.
I need to install another rail from the main one to the table post, which will hold the "props".
All of the rails, posts etc; are from natural fallen timber and all held together with rope rather than nails.
I also put up a couple of nest boxes on Friday , which are well disguised amongst the ivy, which seems to be climbing every tree.
Can't wait to upload an image titled "Coppice One", though I realise it could be a few weeks away yet.
It will be a dream fullfilled
