The Official Pine Open Front Nest Boxes are ideal for species such as wrens, robins and flycatchers which will not use nest boxes with holes. They prefer an open-fronted design, hopping into the box after alighting on a nearby branch.
These nest boxes are hand made using thick, solid pine that keeps the occupants warm and dry. The box does not require any paint or treatment but if you do want to add some extra protection then you can use a water-based varnish or preservative on the outside of the box. 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.
This nest box is available with three different size appetures to suit different different species as follows:
*35mm for wrens
*75mm for robins
*115mm for flycatchers
Please choose which nest box best suits your requirements from the drop down menu above.
