Get your garden ready for national nest box week
Get your garden ready for national nest box week by following this simple guide.
1. You need these items to get ready for national nest box week.
2. Unscrew the two screws located at the front of the nest box.
3. Collect and insert the nesting material.
4. Tighten both screws. Hang your nest box as high as you can to prevent predators from getting to it. Also make sure it is not on a south facing wall as young birds can overheat and may die.
Finally ensure the birds have a clear flight path into the nest box without any objects in front of the entrance which may effect them from getting inside the box. Furthermore we recommend tilting the box forward slightly so that any driving rain will hit the roof and bounce clear.
