Many of our natural nesting sites such as old decaying trees and old farm buildings, are disappearing from our landscape and gardens. We need, therefore, to provide nest boxes, an ideal substitute for a hole in a wall, and bird baths as well as feeders to keep them healthy and happy. This shortage of natural nesting sites for birds has played a part in the decline of some of the UK’s most iconic species.
It is now easier than ever to provide both functional and beautiful nesting opportunities for birds in our gardens and outdoor spaces. There is no best time to put up nest boxes. By putting up boxes in the Autumn, you can provide much-needed winter refuges for roosting birds possibly increasing the chance of them staying and nesting in the spring. Also, waiting until Autumn to clean them usually ensures they’re empty.
One of the key determinants in how likely birds are to occupy nest boxes is where you choose to locate them. Remember to place nest boxes away from feeders and baths. And never disturb the birds once they’re in the box, enjoy watching from afar.
