We're having loft conversion work on our house. Currently we have some sparrow families nesting in the roof space. When the work is done this nest site will be gone. We'd like to provide an alternative.
The two most obvious options - given the planned architecture - are:
Is there a eason why we should choose one over the other (other than aesthetic)?
Does anyone have experience with the built-in boxes and can you recommend a make or type of box? Are there any drawbacks to this choice?
Thanks for your help with this.
I am presuming that the work will be done after the birds have fledged and not now? It is agains the law to interfere with a nest site until the birds have fledged, work can commence once this has happened and at the righr time of year.
