This video series from Britain is about British birds.

From British daily The Guardian:

Today marks the start of National nest box week, which is asking people in the UK to put up nest boxes to help breeding birds and other wildlife. The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), which runs the campaign, says that the natural nest sites on which many of our bird species depend, such as holes in trees and buildings, are fast disappearing as gardens and woods are ‘tidied’ and old houses are repaired.

The BTO says that, since the drive was launched in 1997, thousands of enthusiastic naturalists have put up boxes. It is estimated that there are now 5-6m boxes in gardens across the UK. Visit the website to find out how to build your own nest box, or where to buy one, and use our [photo] gallery to discover which species of bird prefers which type of box.
