Once again Valentine’s Day will see the start of National Nest Box Week, now in its 17th year, the time of year when birds traditionally begin to pair up for the forthcoming breeding season.
Well, it has been quite a week and the visits to my box have been regular and actually increasing! The pair have spent up to half an hour in the box, interacting, snoozing and generally chilling. They seem very comfortable in there.
Every winter hundreds of thousands of thrushes leave continental Europe to spend the winter months on this side of the North Sea.
Winter is not an easy time for birds. They need extra energy to keep warm, especially during long winter nights. To cope with this, they lay down extra fat reserves, though small birds quite often only lay down enough for a single night.
Gardenature won the (SBS) small business award from Theo Pathitis earlier this year when we were recognised for our products, service and UK manufacturing.
After a run of dismal summers, not to mention a late start to spring this year, our butterflies were sorely in need of a spell of dry, warm weather.
Our gardens have been bereft of birds for the last few months but now that the colder weather is here, things are changing. Birds are heading back into our gardens en masse in search of feeding opportunities, much to the delight of Garden BirdWatchers.
FREE SHIPPING ON ALL NEST BOX CAMERA PURCHASES! offer ends Sunday 17th November.
We are pleased to annouce the launch of our new mini camera which we have been developing for use with all gardenature Bird Box Camera and Bird Feeder Camera systems.
After our successful win of the Theo Paphitis SBS award last month, we were contacted by the East Anglian Daily Times for an interview.
Wow we can't believe it! Thank you to Theo Paphitis for recognising and selecting Gardenature as winners of Small Business Sunday #SBS.
