Both boxes side by side with claw hammer for scale. I split the box front with a angled cut to stop water ingress. This allows for easier cleaning. I also ensured the floor of the box was about 6mm higher than the sides and front for better water proof protection. Because this box is mounted so high and is so heavy, I thought it would be easy to fix it through the bottom part of the back of the box which I left extra long. I used  sturdy through M10  bolts, metal plates and washers and fastening nuts. This makes future removal and re fixing much easier. The finished box was very heavy so I decided to mark out a stencil of the bak of the box with the drill hole sites to help with the fixing. I managed to source a small quantity of green roofing felt off eBay which I glued to the roof.

Spotted by the side of the road as I was heading home from the Vet's.

Unusual, perhaps, in that it is missing the striking red eye markings. Presumably something to do with the time of year or its age, maybe?
