House Martins build nests constructed from mud on the eaves of buildings often in colonies averaging five nests, but changes to house construction and roof design mean that suitable nest sites have dramatically declined. Providing an artificial nest provides a great alternative and house martins will readily use artificial nests and encourage other birds to nest nearby. These WoodStone House Martin Nests have been specially designed to appeal to house martins and are constructed from WoodStone, a mixture of wood fibres and concrete that is durable and provides great thermal properties for the growing nestlings. The backing to the nests is also WoodStone, making them very durable. These nests should be sited underneath the eaves on exterior walls of your house or outbuildings, at a minimum height of 2m above the ground.
The WoodStone House Martin Nests are available in single units, with either a right-hand or left-hand entrance or as a double unit with two nests side by side.
