About this product

Natural cavity nest sites have declined dramatically so providing a nest box in your garden or woodland can provide much-needed breeding and roosting space for cavity-nesting species. The 1B is the bestselling nest box for garden birds and will attract a wide range of species and is available with different entrance hole sizes. Examples of bird species attracted to the different entrance hole sizes are: 

  • 32mm: great, blue, marsh, coal and crested tit, redstart, nuthatch, collared and pied flycatcher, wryneck, tree and house sparrow (and bats)
  • 26mm: blue, marsh, coal and crested tit and possibly wren. All other species are prevented from using the nest box due to the smaller entrance hole
  • Oval (29 x 55mm): redstarts (because more light enters the brood chamber) and it is suitable for all other species which nest in the 32mm boxes

Schwegler bird boxes are carefully designed to provide a stable environment and to mimic natural nest and roost sites with internal brood chamber dimensions that are similar to natural cavities. These Woodcrete nest boxes are famous for their durability - lasting for at least 20-25 years. Woodcrete is a breathable blend of wood, concrete and clay which will not rot, leak, crack or warp, whilst preventing condensation and maintaining more constant temperatures inside than wooden boxes.

Schwegler have a patented method of installation on trees that prevents the tree trunk from growing over the hanger from which the box is suspended. The nest box can be attached to the tree or wall using an aluminium nail or by hanging over a branch and is made from Woodcrete to ensure that it lasts for decades. The front panel is removable for inspection and cleaning. For enhanced predator-protection, the Schwegler Predator-Proof Front Panel is also available.
