From the British Trust for Ornithology: National Nest Box Week is great for birds. Starting on St Valentine’s Day, it’s the time we remind ourselves to provide homes for dozens of species, from Blue Tits to Barn Owls.

If you’ve never built a nest box before, why not give it a go this year? Or if you haven’t got the time, it’s easy to buy a good one. Go on, take part for Britain’s birds!

Take a look at the BTO website – follow the links for ideas on how you can take part — and remember if you can’t take part in Nest Box Week, any time of year is a good time to put up a nest box.
