wild bird nest boxes
Wild bird nest boxes are ready to be put up now.
As we enter November we start to think about the new season of wild garden birds, we need to help them over the next few months and ensure we do all we can to provide the garden birds with fresh water and high energy bird food. At the same time the birds are looking for safe havens to roost and keep warm over the winter months.
To place a wild bird nest box
in your garden now is to ensure that not only you provide the birds with a safe resting place at night time, but also your nest box will be getting 'weathered' in ready to be used for it's primary purpose - for the breeding season of wild birds - incidentally, this also applies to small mammals too, you may well find that a Dormouse or other small mammals may occupy the nest box for a while during the Winter. If this happens, don't disturb the occupant unnecessarily, they will depart of their own accord in the Spring, leaving the nest box ready for the birds
