This range includes nest boxes designed especially to help woodland, park and garden birds, including common birds such as Blue Tits, Great Tits and Robins, declining Red Listed species such as House Sparrows and Starlings, or specialist boxes for species such as Treecreepers and Woodpeckers.
You will see that many nest boxes in this range use a material called WoodStone®, a mixture of concrete and FSC® certified wood. WoodStone® allows us to create nest boxes that are attractive and durable, while offering greater insulation than a wooden nest box. This helps to stabilise the temperature inside the box from daily fluctuations, a distinct benefit for incubating birds, nestlings and birds that may use the box as a winter roost site.
WoodStone® nest boxes are breathable, avoiding problems with condensation while still protecting the occupants from rain and wind. There is some evidence to suggest that birds may be able to start nesting earlier in boxes made of this material, with more young fledging successfully.
The robust construction will also resist the attentions of nest box predators such as grey squirrels or woodpeckers, yet another reason to choose WoodStone®
