During March, keep your eyes open for some of our favourite small birds beginning to breed: look for nesting behaviour in blue tits and great tits. For those of you who made nest boxes at the Community Centre in April last year and placed them in your garden, if you’ve not had visitors yet, this is the time of the year when the birds might start showing an interest. Help the Woodland Trust to monitor the birds’ nesting activity by following the link in orange above.
All instructions are given on their website. It would be great to see entries from Orchard Park. I’m watching great tits check out a nest box right now, one’s just gone in, lets hope they decide to use it!
It’s not too late if you haven’t got a nest box yet, act quickly, Cambridge Woodworks is a great source, they make nest boxes from reclaimed and recycled wood – www.cambridgewoodworks.org.uk
