Schwegler Brick Nest Boxes

About this product

This range of brick nest boxes follows a highly successful design that has evolved over 40 years since Schwegler first started producing brick nest boxes for incorporation in buildings. The box dimensions correspond to those of standard, commercially available bricks used in modern European construction. These dimensions allow for a 1cm layer of mortar enabling the nesting blocks to be inserted in any wall without the need to cut adjoining bricks. The box can be installed flush with the outside wall and can be rendered or covered so that only the entrance hole is visible.

The interior of the box resembles a natural woodpecker hole, with the same shallow, oval depression in the floor. The box is manufactured from virtually the same material as Schwegler's tried and tested wood-concrete; an exceedingly durable, rot-proof and breathable natural material designed to mimic the properties of natural nest sites. Three designs of brick nest box are available.

Type 24
Features an upright box with removeable entrance hole at the top. With an entrance hole diameter of 32mm, this box is suitable for many small birds including great, blue, marsh, coal and crested tits, redstarts, nuthatch, tree and house sparrows.
Dimensions: height 23.5cm, width 18cm, depth = 18cm.
Weight = approx. 7.3kg.

Type 25
Features a wide box with removeable entrance hole at the right-hand side. With an entrance hole of 55 x 33mm this is the ideal box for attracting swifts.
Dimensions: height 18cm, width 26.5cm, depth 22cm.
Weight = approx. 8.8 kg.

Type 25A 
Features a wide box with removeable entrance hole at the left-hand side. The Type 25A is based on the very successful Type 25, but features an enlarged breeding space with reduced overall depth of only 15cm. At inaccessible sites we recommend securing the removeable entrance hole insert with silicon or some other sealant to prevent it falling out. With an entrance hole of 55 x 33 mm the Type 25A is ideal for Common Swifts.
Dimensions: height = 18 cm, width = 32 cm, depth = 15 cm.
Weight = 4.5kg.

Type 26
Features an upright box with large open front. With a large open hole (110 x 80mm), this box will attract species that use open-fronted nest boxes, such as redstart, pied wagtail, spotted flycatchers and sometimes robin.
Dimensions: height 98cm, width 18cm, depth 18cm.
Weight = approx. 5.4kg.
