I'm going to make some nice bird nesting boxes for my garden does anyone
know the correct hole size to cut for bluetits as I've heard the hole size
matters and if its not correct the birds wont nest in it
any ideas Thanks
Check these sites:
There are any number of sites which give dimensions for bird boxes suiting
USA/Canadian birds. I would be surprised if there wasn't at least one for
the UK but I certainly couldn't find one when I searched with Google.
Possibly you could contact your local wildlife personnel to see if they can
provide any leads. The local birder's group might be of help also
It certainly is true that my local birds are particular about the box
dimensions although some of them although woodpeckers, in particular, will
take it upon themselves to modify what I provide. Then there are the
squirrels which seem to delight in enlarging the holes until they might pass
largish hawks. :-(
