Starlings need our help and they are easy to attract to a nest box about twice the size of a standard tit box. Mine moved in yesterday and are already enthralling me with their wonderful whistles and gurgling calls made near or from the nest box. They are also a joy to watch nest building as they gather long pieces of straw and grass and carry them up to the nest box. I cleared some grass pieces from the border and the starlings were very quick to find them.
