Create a bird box for your garden

The bird nesting season begins on the 1st March through until the end of July. However, you may start to see your garden birds beginning to gather nesting materials a little earlier.
By creating a bird box and placing it in your garden, you’ll be making a new home for at least one of your local birds.
