Some species like wrens, robins and flycatchers won't use nest boxes with holes. They prefer an open-fronted design, hopping into the box after alighting on a nearby branch. This box is especially designed for use by flycatchers.
This attractive and robust cedar nest box is made in 19mm thick Canadian cedar wood for excellent insulation and strength. The hand-screwed construction reduces the risk of warping or splitting. Cedar wood contains natural oils which mean that the box is long lasting and requires zero maintenance--there is no need for painting, varnishing or preservatives. The box is supplied with an aluminium fixing nail that will not damage the tree and is safe if the tree is ever felled.
To maximise chances of occupation, site the box between 2 to 4 metres above the ground on a wall or tree trunk. If possible, place it in a creeping plant (such as ivy or rose) with an open outlook.
