The 29th and 30th January is the Big Garden Birdwatch organised by the RSPB. A shortage of nesting sites often limits the number of birds that live in a garden, and by providing nest boxes, bird numbers will increase.
Now is the time to clean out and renew nest boxes as in around a month, birds will be looking for a home for the family. There are lots of nest boxes on the market, click here for our favourites.
We also love this superior quality Tawny Owl Nest Box . Designed perfectly for tawny owls and beautifully constructed it will last for many years.
And for the highly sociable, ever declining House Sparrow, these lovely wooden House Sparrow Terraces are brilliant!
