This afternoon Phil and I checked some of his boxes for Tree Sparrows over Wyre. One site only has 7 boxes and another has 20. At the first site we found 2 boxes out of the seven were occupied by Tree Sparrow. in one the nest was complete and in the other the female had started laying her clutch.
The second site was Moss House Farm and Phil put 20 boxes up here in Curlew Wood three years ago. They were soon occupied by Tits, but not by Tree Sparrows.

A quick check revealed that at least 3-4 boxes were occupied by Tree Sparrows.
