Perfect for small bird species such as blue tits, coal tits, marsh tits etc. and a delightful addition to your garden.

Reminiscent of New England beach huts, each bird house features real shingle roofs, lapboard sides, and a silvered hole protector.

The nest box should be sited on a tree, wall or garden fitting at least 1.5m – 2.5m above the ground, preferably in a place where cats and predators cannot access it. The ideal aspect is facing east, SE and NE are also fine. The box should be left empty as wild birds will bring their own nest material into the box.

Nesting is most likely during April and May and in the event of chicks hatching there will be frenetic feeding activity by the parent birds. Take care not to disturb during this time as any intervention may result in the eggs or chicks being abandoned.

The nest boxes are made from slow-seasoned FSC timber and may be painted annually with matching water-based paints to maintain their appearance. The nest box may be cleaned out of any old nesting material and disinfected with a suitable product outside of the breeding season (Sept to Feb). To open, swing the brass catch to the upright position and pivot the nest box side, by opening at the bottom.
