Starling nestboxes around football grounds


This July 2016 video is about hanging nest boxes for starlings around the office of the Dutch football association.

Translated from BirdLife in the Netherlands:

23 August 2016 – Dutch football association KNVB calls on its members to hang up nest boxes for starlings around the soccer grounds. Starlings eat larvae that damage the fields. The association gave a good example and put a number of nest boxes around their head office in Zeist. BirdLife in the Netherlands supports this call because things go badly for starlings.
