New England Bird Nest Box
With a design reminiscent of quaint beach huts, these houses boast authentic shingle roofs, lapboard sides, and silvered hole protectors. Ideal for housing a variety of small bird species, including blue tits, coal tits, and marsh tits, these charming abodes make a delightful addition to any garden.
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.
Monitoring & Inspection
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 parent birds' eggs or young being abandoned.
The nest boxes are made from slow-seasoned FSC timber and maybe 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 such as Wildkleen 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 it at the bottom.
