New to this but I need some expert advice. we have a large (8m x 4m) shed in the bottom of our garden which we were about to demolish to build a new one, it is very run down. My wife noticed birds flying in and out holes in some of the woodwork, neither of us are experts but the best description I have is:
1) The first birds are small and brown, no other colours.
2) The second are same size, small but black and white.
It would seem that both types are nesting, if we walk around in the shed the tweeting gets various furious, or they can be spotted on a nearby fence eyeing us up. We do not in any way want to harm any birds, so I have two questions. What should we do, and when? I was hoping to start demolition and a new base in April but I don’t think this will be possible now...
