Should birds nests be removed ,after a seasons nesting?
I have always cleared them ,But would a bird Re- nest/ breed in their old nest another year.Something we were just thinking about ,so I thought ask my Groes on You friends



Some birds do re-use their old nest. The classic example, though not quite the usual garden bird, would be the osprey which returns to the same nest year after year. Few people clean out bird nesting boxes and they get re-used regularly.
