It's National Nestbox Week from 14th February to 21st February

Posted on


It’s National Nestbox Week which runs from the 14th to the 21st February every year.

It’s an important week, because the places available to our feathered friends have decreased over the years, so nestboxes matter to birds.  There are fewer nest holes in buildings, and our fashion of making our gardens neat and tidy has removed a lot of places where birds have traditionally nested and rested.

Enter National Nestbox Week.  Its website has lots of help for you if you want to get involved and give garden birds a nestbox, including where to put one, when to put one up, how to care for it, and even how to make your own.   There’s even advice for architects, landscapers and developers.
