Five more nest boxes placed in Pinkerton Forest

will clegg arboristPinkerton Landcare and Environment Group have recently placed five nest boxes in Pinkerton Forest. Will Clegg, an arborist at Melbourne Zoo, did the hard work of placing the boxes high in the trees. His work was most spectacular as he climbed each tall tree with the aid of climbing ropes. They needed to be placed several metres above the ground to be suitable as wildlife nest sites and safe from predators.
