A NEST box with a view has been installed on the University of York’s 60-metre high boilerhouse chimney - in a bid to attract peregrine falcons to the campus. The new high rise box and perch have been installed on the highest point on the university’s Heslington West site as part of efforts to increase the diversity of wildlife on the 500-acre campus. More than 150 bat, owl and bird boxes have also been installed in woodland areas.
