About this product

Starlings are often seen as a problem at certain times of the year and in particular regions. They are highly adaptable, feed in flocks and can soon use up readily available sources of food. However, we should not forget the ecological benefits that they provide as an important and natural form of pest control. For example, they limit the numbers of crane flies, green oak leaf rollers and gypsy moths.

The Schwegler 3S Starling nest box has become established as the standard design both in the UK and Europe. Not only will the 3S nest box attract starlings, it is just as likely to provide overnight shelter for great spotted, middle spotted and lesser spotted woodpeckers. When there are fewer starlings, other species such as pied flycatchers and nuthatches may breed in these boxes. Because of the relatively large entrance hole (45mm diameter), the interior is well lit which encourages occupation. The large diameter nesting chamber (140mm) also helps to encourage occupation.

Ornithologists advise that a perch below the entrance hole is unnecessary because the birds will happily use the roof of the box.

If there are a large number of predators in the vicinity, we recommend the Schwegler Nest Box 3SV with Predator Protection.
