Hi Everyone,

Below is the email I sent earlier in the day regarding the Nest Box project. Here are some photos that I have received so far. I am expecting a some more so will add them when they arrive. https://flic.kr/s/aHsk8SLgaX
A job well done.
Somehow the Miramichi Leader heard about it and called me at lunch time for details so I expect there will be a story in the paper on Friday.

Hi Everyone,

The installation of the Tree Swallow nest boxes at Miramichi Marsh this morning went very well. There are now 14 brand new apartments replacing extremely dilapidated ones.

This is an initiative I think the club should be very proud of and I would like to sincerely thank those who were able to do the work this morning on behalf of those of us who couldn’t get there.

The tenants will be looking to move in in three of four weeks if you can imagine. The young fledge in late June and once they learn to catch their own insects on the fly, they leave the marsh area, usually all gone by the end of the first week in July in my experience.
