Habi-Sabi is a new concept in urban wildlife support based on the Japanese Wabi-Sabi principle of finding beauty in simplicity, austerity and natural variation. Their range of wildlife habitat products are constructed entirely from an up-cycled material called Barsmark PT-200 which is made from recycled waste insulation. As well as being aesthetically beautiful, this material is 100% resistant to moisture, has a lifespan of 20-25 years and weathers to a soft golden finish.
The Habi-Sabi Starling Box is supplied flat-packed and the ingenious design ensures that it is lightweight and simple to construct, requiring no nails or screws. The nest box is designed to be attached to exterior walls of buildings using a simple piece of wire (not supplied), but could also be attached to trees or fences using the same method. Starlings often prefer to roost in cities as they tend to be a couple of degrees warmer than more rural areas and, although the difference is slight, it may be the key to their survival through winter. Starlings have been in decline since the 1970s and as a result are red listed in the UK as a bird of high conservation concern so providing suitable nesting sites is of critical importance.
