Nestboxes in Iraq

Submitted by on

The following link is to an article in the latest issue of British Birds describing how nestboxes were made and put up by school children in Kurdistan, Iraq. Nest holes are at a premium in this area so the nestboxes should help Great Tits (which have been found to nest in holes on the ground) and Sombre Tits (which have a globally restricted range). It is hoped that the boxes may also be used by the large number of Western and Eastern Rock Nuthatches in the area.
