The annual National Nest Box Week runs from 14-21 February.

There is some evidence to suggest that birds using nest boxes are more successful than those that don’t.  We also know that boxes are used in winter as roost sites.

Building a nest box is not difficult, so why not give it a go this year?  There are plenty of plans available on the Web, e.g. Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.

Remember to always get permission from the land owner when erecting a nest box.
