Talkback: Birds - make your own bird box

Posted: 06/12/2013 at 10:01

If I put up several boxes with different size openings for different birds, how far apart should they be? Should they go on the back of the studio facing North, though there is a strong security light there which responds to movement; on the East side is a lean to greenhouse which might confuse the birds. If placed in a tree, how to fasten them there without using screws?

Thank you Clarington, there is one more high tide tonight, but there is no way the water is coming this far inland I think (no thanks to the info supplied by the Environment Agency whose web site was virtually down yesterday due to volume, I guess, of people trying to get access!) A pity government organisations never seem to get the IT thing right.

It's a bit late, as far as I can see, the objections had to be registered by Dec 4th.

Dove, is sending a PM to Daniel the same as 'report to moderator'?

I see loads of people have looked at your posting, so I will be the brave one; what are bunds, and what is an Abri?

A few years back, I discovered a cardboard box with, I think, a computer in it under my oil tank; it had been there for 10 months! It was addressed to my neighbour!
