There is a shortage of natural nesting sites, which is thought to be one of the major factors behind the decline of some of our once most-common birds. By putting up nest boxes, such as this, which replicates a bird's natural nesting preferences, you can encourage them to breed near your home.
Different species prefer different nest boxes and our range has been designed by our team of ornithologists to optimum dimensions for the species concerned. Look out for regular visitors to your garden and choose a box which best suits their needs. You can check this using our hole size guide.
This nest box is made from a natural birch log and is ideal for those who prefer a more natural look. As this is a natural product the dimensions stated are approximate.
This birch log nest box has a 45mm entrance hole and has been specially developed for starlings. It should be sited at a height of 2-3 metres. Starlings are lively characters and are a pleasure to watch and listen to in the garden. In spring they have a magnificent shimmering green-purple plumage and they are also passionate singers, often imitating other animals and sounds.
