National Nest Box week is next week!
National Nest Box week happens every year February 14 – 21 to encourage everyone to put up nest boxes to help our birds. You can read more about it on the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) website HERE.
If you need a hand choosing a box, or perhaps making one, here are some links to help you out:
- BTO buying a box
- BTO putting up a box
- BTO make a nest box
- RSPB Making a box
- RSPB advice; nest boxes for small birds
To give you an idea of the task, before you start, here’s a video on how to make a box from the Wildlife garden project
How about giving it a go? I find it very rewarding and I really enjoy watching the birds, knowing I’m giving them a helping hand.
If you can put up a box or not, why not help spread the word!
The more people involved, the more boxes we can get put up! I aim to tweet during nest box week and perhaps share photos of my boxes.
