Building the "Sand Castle"

We thought you might like to see the pictorial story of how our newly completed Sand Martin Nesting Bank came to fruition.








November 2018 and work starts with the digging out of the foundations













December sees the preparation of the ground ready for sinking the support posts












The new year and construction gets underway in earnest














February and the posts are in and the walls start to take shape












March, the start of Spring and the arrival of the nesting chambers on site












Mid-March and the access area takes shape and the first of the nesting chambers are installed












The roof is fitted and more nest chambers are put in place












As March progresses the nest box access tubes are cemented into place 














Early April and the access tubes are completed.....













and inside the addresses are all numbered











Mid-April and the job is completed with an external coating.
