BIRD BOXES

OUR BIRD BOXES

All our bird boxes are made from UK grown Western Red Cedar. This air-dried timber is naturally weatherproof and will not need treating with wood preservative or paint.

 

CHOOSING A BIRD BOX

Different birds have different requirements with regard the entrance-hole size at the front of the box. We offer a wide range of bird boxes with different size entrances to ensure suitable habitats can be provided for both common garden and rare species alike. 

25mm: Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Marsh Tits

28mm: Great Tits, Nuthatches, House Sparrows, Tree Sparrows

32mm: House sparrows

40mm: Starlings

Open-fronted: Robin's, Wrens, Pied Blacktails, Blackbirds and to some extent winter roosting for many garden birds

SITTING YOUR BIRD BOX

Fix boxes 1.5 – 5m above the ground to replicate natural nesting heights. This height will also help to deter predators. Bird boxes should ideally face South-East to North East. Be sure to site boxes so that they are sheltered from the wind, rain and strong sunlight.

 

MAINTAINING YOUR BIRD BOX

Bird boxes should be cleaned out in the autumn when the risk of disturbing birds is at a minimum. Remove the four brass screws on the roof of the box to gain access to the inside chamber. If necessary, clean the box out with warm water. If your box is not used in the first year – persevere. Leaving your box up in winter may provide a useful roost in bad weather. If correctly sited, in time, birds will find their way in.
