National Nest Box Week

Its National Nest Box Week (and the last day of National Chip Week!) By the way Karen is SOOOO busy getting all those orders organised in the office - she has handed me the blog to run - and I am really looking forward to it. If you are lucky enough to get a Nuthatch nesting in your garden they usually plaster some mud around the hole as this is what they would do if they actually had to make a nest from scratch! To supply a ready made home for your potential brood of nuthatches you will need to site a box with an entrance of about 32mm, best to pop it over 3 metres high and make sure there is a clear flight path in and out! They will then line the floor of the box with wood chippings and leaves.Cool!Here's Ricardo's general nest box week advice.and here is a selection of Wiggly nest boxes.
