Putting up bird boxes is a sure way to attract nesting birds to your garden, and in doing so, you'll bring insectivorous species that will keep the number of pests down in your garden. To ensure a wide range of species visit your garden, it's worth knowing which nest boxes suit which species. Don't forget to support your feathered visitors by providing a range of supplementary bird feeds.
