Breeding season for the birds in our gardens.

I just popped down stairs to make a cup of tea and whilst waiting for the kettle to boil i was captivated by a blue tit sizing up my neighbours bird box. Flitting to and fro, pecking at the hole and accessing the dangers.Wonderful to watch. Its turning to spring and the birds are turning their attention to raising a family.
This reminded me that I’ve been meaning to write this blog for a couple of weeks now. (Prompted recently by the annual bird box week, which was set up 10 years ago or so to encourage us to provide nesting sites in our gardens).
When I first moved to the Island I made contact with Haylands Farm in Ryde. They  help employ people with learning difficulties, creating jobs in horticulture, recycling, and wood working.
I approached them to supply me with a few wildlife boxes, and now 5 years later we still use these boxes in our customers gardens. Quality made to be durable, using local timber which needs no maintenance. The front hole can be changed to attract different types of birds, or left open, which is more suitable for wrens, robins and flycatchers.
We’ve had good success with these boxes in our customers gardens, and we offer a service of supply and install on the I.O.W.
If you put a nest box up now you’ll boost your chance of birds nesting and roosting in your garden. Its breeding season!
