Bird and bat boxes have been installed in two of Tower Hamlets Council’s parks as part of the commitment to enhance biodiversity under the Green Flag Awards scheme.
Four bat boxes (photo left), four hole-fronted nest boxes (header photo) and one sparrow terrace box were attached to trees in Poplar Recreation Ground. In Trinity Square Gardens, one sparrow terrace, one hole-fronted box and one bat box were installed. The installation, which involved some impressive tree climbing, was carried out free of charge by City Suburban Tree Surgeons, the Council’s tree contractor.
Hopefully, the boxes will soon be home to House Sparrows, Blue and Great Tits, and bats.
