Why We Have National Nest Box Week

National Nest Box Week is launched every year on February 14th by the British Trust for Ornithology so we can all celebrate National Nest Box Week and buy a nest box now.

The aim of National Nest Box Week is to encourage everyone to put up nest boxes to help our breeding birds.

Some  birds will be looking for nest sites now.

Putting up nest boxes really helps birds and the sight of young birds always lifts the spirits.

Over the years we have put up nest boxes from small ones to barn owl nest boxes.  We thought there was a barn own nesting in the box we put up, but it was a jackdaw!.

But we have had more success with the other nest boxes.  Why not give it a try.

Bird Boxes and Gardens

The gardens in this country have an area much bigger than all our nature reserves put together.


 The ability for us to use our gardens as nesting sites for birds is enormous.  

Why not go out and buy a nest box and help the next generation of our British Garden Birds.
