NOW is certainly the time to ensure all nest boxes are in place.Ive had some success with nest boxes in my garden.
Installed a tit box which was occupied the following spring. Here it is on my garage wall above the bbq...
Installed another tit book in the apex of my garden shed which was also occupied the following spring..
Just behind the garage and far too close to the first tit box I have a blackbird nest box, I put it there as a temporary fix but blackbirds built a nest the following spring, but sadly didn't lay eggs..
And then I discovered at the beginning of last winter a beautiful goldfinch nest in my laurel hedge..
So get your nest boxes up everyone, birds will be looking for suitable sites about now, but may not use them until the following year.
