Small bird nest box for wild garden birds.

This traditional wooden small bird nest box is an improved version of the tried & tested design recommended by the British Trust for Ornithology. An ideal home for Great, Coal and Blue Tits as well as other small hole-nesting birds, such as Pied Flycatchers, Sparrows and Nuthatches.
Hand made by the Barn Owl Trust in Devon, UK.

Size: 230 x 410 x 250mm.
Weight: 3kg

‘Built to last’ using durable, pressure-treated softwood, this bird box has two key improvements:

  • Thick torch-on roofing felt (with no nails or piercings) forms the lid-hinge and overhangs the sides, keeping the bird-box nest completely dry, while allowing access for cleaning.
  • A metal plate prevents Squirrels or Woodpeckers from widening the entrance hole.

Traditional nesting box design features:

  • The nest box lid opens to allow easy access for inspection and cleaning.
  • These small bird nestboxes do not have a perch on the front, as this is not necessary for the birds and may even make access easier for predators.
  • Ideal homes for Blue Tits, Great Tits, Coal Tits, Sparrows, Nuthatches, Pied Flycatchers and other wild, small hole-nesting birds.
