Give a bird a home during national nest box week

Starting on Valentine's Day the British Trust for Ornithology encourages everyone to put up a nest box and make a feathered friend.

Many natural nesting sites have been lost so nest boxes give birds somewhere to breed and should help secure a future for many of our species.

The website offers a wealth of information including how to make your own nest box, how to put it up and even which kinds of birds you can expect to see moving into your next box in the near future.
