I follow a rule that i heard of years ago that says if a bird takes off nearby don’t walk towards where it took off from but away from it or towards where the bird flew to. The idea being that when a nesting bird senses a predator it will take off to lure it away from the nest.
As for the letterbox code i can remember years ago in the days i used to do a little bit of letterboxing boxers were asked to keep away from certain areas in the nesting season, so the same should apply to cachers. And its in the guidelines not to place caches that will disturb wildlife.
