Vivara Pro Barcelona WoodStone Open Nest Box

About this product

These attractive nestboxes are manufactured from WoodStone which is a mix of concrete and FSC certified wood fibres. Unlike a traditional wooden nest box, these boxes will not rot away or deteriorate and are guaranteed for 10 years. This robust material safeguards against attacks from predators such as woodpeckers, cats and squirrels, whilst also providing a well insulated interior with a more consistent internal temperature than an ordinary wooden box. This is especially important during the breeding season and ensures that young birds have a greater chance of survival. Nesting sites have become rare for cavity nesting birds due to changes in woodland management practices, so you can provide much-needed space for rearing chicks and birds that are roosting overwinter with these durable, long-lasting nest boxes.

These open nest boxes are suitable for wrens, robins, spotted flycatchers, pied and grey wagtails, song thrushes and blackbirds, and they are available in brown, green or grey to complement both natural woodland and garden settings.

The best height for your nest box is between 1.5m and 3m high, and open nest boxes should be sited in undergrowth such as ivy to provide cover for the nest.

These nest boxes have a removable front panel for easy cleaning. Although birds will clean their own nest boxes before each breeding season, cleaning the boxes out at the end of each breeding season may encourage them to be used again in future years, as it reduces parasites. The nesting time of birds varies from species to species so we suggest you wait until October when the last of the birds will have left before cleaning. The nest may come out easily but if there are any deposits scrape them out. We recommend using hot water rather than chemicals to remove any parasites that remain.
