I should go and count how many we have....We have a lot. So I thought I'd dig out some photos to show you them - all hand painted by our visitors.

So get out there this National Nest Box week - wherever you live - and build or buy a nesting box. It will bring you so much joy! And now is the perfect time to get them up in place. There is information on building them and positioning them on the National Nest Box website.
The best part is that you can get little cameras to go inside so you can watch what happens, and listen to all the little chirps. Give it a try, you'll love it!
