This eco-friendly nest box consists of a weatherproof outer shell made from UV stabilised 100% recycled plastic. Inside the outer shell is a wooden nesting chamber which provides the ideal environment for birds to nest in. The outer shell has been precision cut and uses an ingenious system of tabs to hold it together. This further extends the lifespan ensuring that there are no metal fixings that could rust or degrade over time. The removable wooden nesting chamber has drainage holes and is constructed from FSC Certified Oriented Strand Board, which is made from flakes obtained from wood waste or from saplings thinned from forests to make space for larger trees. If you need to check or clean the box it’s simply a case of twisting the fastening at the bottom and the wooden nesting chamber slides out.
The robin box is an open-fronted nest box. As well as providing a suitable nest box for robins, it’s also ideal for other birds that use open-fronted boxes such as wrens, pied wagtails and spotted flycatchers.
Fixing to the wall or tree is easy with three concealed mounting holes in the back of the box (located opposite the entrance hole for easy access). Often this is the only fixing needed, but a further hole is provided at the base for additional stability. The easiest way to mount the box is to remove the inner, fix the outer shell onto the tree or wall, then slide the inner roost chamber back into the box and secure it in place.
