National Nest Box Week
Friday 14 February
National Nestbox Week is an established part of the ornithological calendar. Celebrated from February 14th each year, it puts the spotlight on breeding birds and asks everyone to put up more nestboxes in their local area. National Nestbox Week was first established in 1997.
It aims to encourage everyone to put up nest boxes in their local area in order to promote and enhance biodiversity and conservation of our breeding birds and wildlife.
The British Trust for Ornithology nest box guide is full of lots of information:
- Why we need nest boxes
- Buying a nest box
