Top tips about bird boxes

    • Bird boxes should face between north and south-east.

    • Place nest boxes at least 2 metres above the ground to protect against predators like cats.

    • Most species of garden birds prefer to nest in isolation, so place your boxes at least 15 metres apart. Sparrows, however, are communal, and like to nest in adjacent boxes.

    • Avoid any disturbance in the spring or early summer. Disturb as little as possible at other times as birds often like to roost in nest boxes, especially in the winter.

  • If you would like to clean out your bird box in preparation for next year's nest, do so around September time to be sure that all nesting activity has finished.
