How to build a bird box for your garden

There are few sights more pleasant than seeing birds fly the nest for the first time and swoop across your garden, spreading their wings.

While this may sound like a rare sight, you can increase your chances of seeing this significantly by installing bird boxes in your garden.

Whether on a tree or the fence, bird boxes can attract nature and also provide colourful garden decoration, particularly in the warmer months when you spend longer outside and more birds will grace your home exterior.
