Making a bird box couldn’t be simpler and is one of the best ways of attracting birds into your garden.
This project uses a single piece of wood, costing just a couple of pounds, cut into six sections. Make sure you site your nesting box high up in a tree or building away from predators, strong sunlight and wind. A north-east facing spot is best.
If you have house sparrows visiting your garden, group two or three nest boxes close together, as they like to nest in loose colonies.
