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 using our hole size guide.
These nest boxes, made from a mix of wood and concrete, offers maximum insulation in the cold winter months while maintaining a stable temperature, vital to young chicks, throughout the breeding season. The material is breathable and therefore condensation in the nest box is greatly reduced. The durable exterior also offers greater protection from predators.
An open nest box will be used by Robins and Wrens (if well hidden), Spotted Flycatchers, Pied and Grey Wagtails, Song Thrushes and Blackbirds.
