In the second part of this programme clip from Gardeners’ World, Monty Don is putting up two different types of nest box – one for tits and one for robins, wrens and flycatchers. He shows you where to site each nest box to suit the birds they’re designed for, which way they should face, and how high to place them. Bird boxes need to be in place by mid-winter, so watch this practical video now and install them in good time.
