How close to a feeder(s) for a nest box is too close? Our nest box is vacant, and has been since we put it up last year. We had a couple of blue tits inspect it on the first day, but since then, nothing. There are feeder on the adjacent fence about 6 feet away, and some to the right of the nest box, as close as maybe 3 feet, but slightly lower down on the garage wall that acts as part of the 'fence' at the bottom of our garden. Should I consider moving the feeders in the hope of increasing our chances? We have a relatively small garden, approx 100sqm
