We have a fairly large Robin nest box in our clematis.
robins nested last year in the ‘ bedroom end’ of box, this year they have nested in the mouth
of the box.
I have read that from October onwards these nests should be removed so Robins can nest again.
it seems quite cruel to remove these nest as that’s a lot of work for a small bird.
my question is - is it necessary , so as to encourage future nesting robins? Or by not removing old nests,
New Robins will be discouraged from nesting there. any advise will be welcome. Thank you
