Im looking for some advice please on positioning new rooster boxes with an existing bird box.
I have a small garden but lots of birds regularly visit which is great. Ive had a bird box on the back wall for the past 3 years & have been very lucky to have blue tits nest in it 2 consecutive years. We made 2 Rooster boxes in January for small birds to rest in during our frequent storms. Ive seen blue tits exploring these but Im anxious that positoning them so close to the existing bird box which prevent either the rooster boxes being used and/or the existing bird box being used for nesting in the spring? Can anyone tell me please what is the minimum space needed between each box? As my garden is small I am limited to other areas to position these but would be happy to reposition things to make room, further away, if necessary? Please help
