    There is no shortage of moss in my back garden. I recently went over the lawn with a scarifier and removed loads of moss. It is all dumped in behind the trees out of sight. But the birds do know where it is and use it to nest. Last year was the first year that birds other than collared doves...

    My nest boxes. Some interest in them since they went up. Hopefully I’ll have some new tenants soon.

    Thank you. I built 3 nesting boxes over the Autumn and hung them up before Christmas. I have had some interest in them. I’ll take some pics tomorrow.

    Thank you. I build 3 nest boxes in the Autumn and hung them up during the winter. I built them off of plans. I have one with a 25mm hole, one with a 28mm hole plus one I build for Robins. I’ve seen some interest in them over the last few weeks. Hopefully I’ll have tenants in them soon.

    New Nesting Boxes

    I made 3 nesting boxes, 1 for Robins and 2 for Blue tits, and I hung them up earlier today. Hopefully I’ll have some tenants living in them in the Spring. It was nice making up my own nest boxes. Long time since I did anything like that. They should last for a long time as the versions in most...

    It was hanging from a branch and was secure. Out of reach of cats. But yes a little low. I fear that by putting out peanuts in a bird feeder close by I frightened them off. I’ll lever do that again. I am so disappointed. I’ll build a couple of nesting boxes myself now and secure them properly...

    Thank you for the advice. Yes I think that is what has happened. I am so annoyed with myself. I had not put anything into the bird feeders for a few weeks up until then. Lesson learnt. I won’t make that mistake again.

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome. Yes May was very cold and wet. Although the Adult Blue Tits stopped flying into the nest box very suddenly. I fear that by putting out food in the bird feeder I attracted birds into the area which might have frightened them off. I am annoyed with myself...

    Hello, First post. I have a nice back garden with plenty of foliage and mature trees. Perfect for small birds. For the past few years I have put out a few different bird feeders and have enjoyed watching the various birds visiting and eating from the feeders. This year for the first time we had...
