Now that spring is in the air our birds are looking for places to nest.
It only takes a small amount of time to make a nest box and they can be made out of any bits and pieces of wood lurking around in your shed or on the plot.
We have placed two on each of our plots and hopefully we will have some pairs of "tits" nesting in them this year.
I have added a couple of links for designs and tips on where to site them but believe me, they dont have to look brilliant to be effective.
You will be well rewarded when you see blue tits helping you remove caterpillars and such like from your crops.
This last link has a print friendly guide with all measurements etc on.
Go on, be green and be wildlife friendly at the same time.
