Pied Flycatcher info request

In recent years the numbers of Pied Flycatchers at Denmark Farm have gone into sharp decline. As recently as 2016 I counted 16 males, but as far as I can tell, just 7 this year. Over the winter I spent quite a bit of time cleaning out as many boxes as I could find/reach, fixed up a couple and put up half a dozen new woodcrete boxes. But the decline appears to continue. I'd be interested to know if others are finding the same? Also, woodcrete boxes; do others have success with them especially regards Pied Flys? Denmark Farm would be grateful for any advice/information.
