Birds at Williamson Park can look forward to feathering their nests in brand new homes this year thanks to the 50 new bird boxes recently installed in trees at Fenham Carr.
Lancaster City Council initiated a project for prisoners from HMYOI Lancaster Farms to make the boxes during the winter and they are now ready to be put in place.
Coun Ron Sands,said: “The hard work of the young offenders will contribute to the woodland improvements that are ongoing in Williamson Park to which many members of the local community have also contributed. With the recent installation of a bird hide in Fenham Carr, this area of the park is quickly becoming an ideal spot for bird watchers.”
Governor of HMYOI Lancaster Farms, Stephen Lawrence, said: “Williamson Park is a great feature of Lancaster and we are pleased to have had this partnership opportunity to help with the woodland improvements. Many of the staff at Lancaster Farms live within the area and will be part of the community who benefit from the project.”
