Nugent's Wood

I've spent a lovely day with nine other National Trust staff and volunteers.

We were at Nugent's Wood, which lies along the shore to the north-west of Portaferry, County Down.

Our task today was to erect twelve bird-boxes and six bat-boxes; and we had a rung-ladder for this purpose.

The boxes were placed on the trees at a height of between 12-15 feet.

The Shore Lodge, which is at the entrance to the wood, is derelict and neglected, quite astonishing for a charming little building with such a fine prospect of Strangford Lough and Castle Ward.
