  2. I saw an idea on Facebook recently to use old shoes nailed to a trunk as nestboxes. I have started such an experiment here in Yandoit. Any idea what I might expect in a size 9? Which would be better – vertical (opening at the top) or horizontal?

  3. Hi John, good luck with the experiment. Not sure if I can provide any sensible advice other than to try a few different combinations! Will be fascinated to hear the results. Perhaps I could drop by for a visit some time to see how it’s going?
    All the best, geoff
