Blackbird FSC Nest Box

About this product

Environmental changes such as urbanisation and deforestation have contributed to a shortage of natural nesting sites and has played a part in the decline of many UK native bird species. This FSC-certified wood nest box provides a man-made alternative to help conserve our wild birds.

With its open front and larger size, this nest box has been specially designed for blackbirds, but you may find that robins and wrens are also attracted to this box. Blackbirds can have up to five successful broods in one year so don't remove any old nests until the breeding season is over (October onwards).

Where to Site
Choose a sheltered, shaded spot at least 2 m above ground. Fix to a tree or wall using the hanger at the top of the box.

Cleaning and Hygiene
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, not pesticides. The use of gloves is recommended, washing hands afterwards.
