Now is a great time to put up a bird nest box!
Traditionally people have put up nest boxes in the early Spring so they are ready for the breeding season. However, there really is no ‘best’ time to put up nest boxes. By putting up nest boxes in the Autumn you can provide a much needed winter refuge for roosting birds and increase the chance of them staying and nesting. However, any box erected before the end of Winter stands a good chance of being occupied, even after September there is still a chance of occupancy. Whatever the time of year the box is erected, it is likely to be used for roosting so shouldn't stay unoccupied for long. Therefore consider purchasing a nest box during autumn!
