We’re now well into the annual bird nesting season, which runs from March to August for most species.
During this time, you may find birds nesting in your trees, shrubs, hedges, ivy, boxes, under your eaves or on the roof. It’s important that you don’t cut back any vegetation during this time in case you disturb nests, which can be well hidden.
You should trim your hedges once a year, during the winter, if needed as this gives wildlife the chance to eat any berries. All wild birds, including their nests and eggs, are protected by law.
