Thanks all - mine has a sloping roof. Still no birds in it though  but possibly OH hammering and generally pottering to and fro from his adored shed isn't helping...

Lovely photos Lead! Envious? MOI??

It's about 1.8m up from the ground, north facing, very protected with a bambooo growing over the opening and a mature ceanotus arching over it. 

Crab apple in front which birds often hop onto.

Many blue tits, sparrows, robins and wrens in our garden.

It's a box with a hole, which I think is for blue tits...only put it up early March - any chance there'll be takers this year?

Verdun, that is brilliant

There was a young farmer of Leeds,

Who swallowed six packets of seeds,

It soon came to pass

He was covered in grass

And he couldn't sit down for the weeds.

 

Not technically a joke...
