About this product

Starling numbers have fallen by more than 60 per cent in the last 30 years and loss of natural nesting sites may be one contributing factor to this decline. This box provides an ideal man-made alternative nesting site. The starling nest box is made of strong plywood with the 45 mm entrance hole preferred by starlings. It has a hinged lid for easy cleaning, while drainage holes in the base help keep the nest dry.

Where to site
Starlings require undisturbed sites so choose a sheltered, shaded spot at least 2 m above ground. Fix the box to a tree or wall using the pre-drilled hole at the top of the box. Three nails or screws are required.

Breeding season
Birds generally breed from February to August in the UK. The earlier you put up the box, the longer they will have to find and claim it.

To ensure late-breeding birds are not disturbed in the nest, leave cleaning until October. Completely remove all nest material from the box. If further cleaning is required, use hot water only. Don't use pesticides. The use of gloves is recommended.
