Each year the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) runs National Nest Box Week from 14th to 21st February. St Valentine’s Day marks the start since this is the traditional date when birds pair up for the new breeding season. This is also an excellent time to put up new boxes and clean out the old ones in preparation for nesting.

This site gives lots of information and guidance for making, buying and maintaining nest boxes – the aim being to promote and enhance biodiversity and conservation of our breeding birds and wildlife.
