About this product

In our modern environments many bird species are struggling to find enough suitable nesting sites. As a result, a lot of species which have traditionally been so abundant in our gardens are declining drastically in numbers. Installing a nest box (or several boxes) in your garden is one of the easiest and best ways that you can help these local bird populations. A bird box will provide a warm, sheltered environment with protection from most types of predators, helping to improve the chances of breeding success.

Our own range of wooden bird nest boxes have been custom designed and manufactured from substantial 2cm thick FSC-certified European Redwood.  These simple, breathable wooden bird boxes have a sloping roof and four drainage holes and are ideal for providing crucial nesting spaces for the smaller garden birds.

The 25mm entrance hole is suitable for the smaller tit species such as blue and coal tits whilst the 32mm entrance hole will attract a wide range of garden birds including great tits, house sparrows and nuthatches.  Nest boxes also provide vital roosting spaces for birds during the cold winter months and the thick walls of these nest boxes will ensure that roosting birds stay warm.  

The boxes can be expected to last 5-10 years and are constructed using stainless steel staples which will not rust.

These boxes can be installed on a tree or wall and should be placed two to four metres 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.

  • How should one clean it?
    By Robert 19 Aug 2016 Written for 32mm entrance hole
    Normally, nest boxes need to be inspected and emptied once a year for optimal use by the birds. But it looks like there is no provision to open up this box. So how should one clean it out?

  • Superb value for money bird box
    By Richard 22 Apr 2020 Written for 32mm entrance hole
    This is a great product, I’ve had mine for three or four years now, used every year, and still solid. They weather, untreated, to a silvery grey colour. Still solid and dry inside, placed on a high North facing wall that is exposed to the elements. The top has screws (only visible on one pic) for cleaning – although I adapted mine using some gardening wire so that they could be monitored more easily for NRS.
