Nest boxes should be well designed, featuring holes in the base to ensure good drainage. They should also be well insulated yet still provide sufficient ventilation for the birds inside. A good nest box should also open and close to allow for easy cleaning.
When positioning a nest box, the entrance should face away from prevailing wind and rain and out of direct sunlight. It should be placed away from feeders too, so nesting boxes are not disturbed. Angling the front slightly will also stop water getting in.
Boxes should be placed in a quiet spot and at a height predators will find difficult to reach. Make sure you check the entrance hole is big enough for the birds you are trying to attract.
Nest box facts from the experts:
Although you can put up a box at any time of the year, birds will be looking for somewhere to nest and rear their young from January onwards.
