Death of a nest box colony - update

I've heard from Steve Carter who's done some sterling research work on the now defunct nest box colony on the outskirts of New Inn by thumbing through some Gwent Bird Report back issues. Seems that this colony was in its prime during the 1970s onward, but the most interesting fact is that it once supported 40 tree sparrow nests. Begs the question, is there still a remnant population in the area?
