Nest boxes are just one of the ways in which you can help birds of prey in your area. In the UK we have four species that will take to nest boxes positioned in the correct habitat. Habitat is probably the most important word when it comes to providing a nest box; if you haven’t got the suitable surrounding habitat and location then you won’t attract the target species. (If this is the case, it can still be successful in homing other birds!) Take a look at the individual pages for each species to see some of the best designs, how they are made and where and how to put them up safely.
