Have you enough Bird Boxes up? Apologies for no posts lately- my cold has become sinusitis, but I’ll do a quick post today on the fact that it is National Bird Nest Box Week! Not exactly a catchy title but really worth thinking about. This is a great time of year to clean out and repair existing nest boxes or put up some new ones, in your garden or a community space. They are pretty easy to build, and the BTO or RSPB sites, among others, will give you plans for all sorts- whether for Tits, Sparrows, Robins,or bigger birds like Owls. They are also increasingly easy to buy, along with instructions about the best places to erect them. If you put them up soon, birds will have time to stake them out for the breeding season.
