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.
The boxes are easy to mount with a metal plate at the rear with a hole that can be used to loop over a simple nail or screw. These boxes can be installed on a tree or wall and should be placed 2-4m above ground. There should be a clear flight path to the entrance hole and the boxes should be placed so that the entrance is not exposed to strong sunlight or winds. The box also features a side cleaning flap for easy access.
This box is an ideal addition to any wildlife garden and will attract a wide range of garden birds including great tits, house sparrows and nuthatches.
