Two years ago I bought a robin nesting box, the sort which have quite a large front opening. The Dunnocks decided to use it to raise a family in. Alas the Magpie soon spotted the nestlings and had the lot. Now the Dunnocks usually raised their family in the honeysuckle and as far as I'm aware, this was successful. No bird has used the nesting box since and I am beginning to think that hedges and thick shrubs are less conspicuous than some types of nesting boxes. What are the experiences of others?
