Our nest box design provides the birds with shelter for their eggs and young whilst still giving the adults a good view of the surrounding area.
Site at least 5m high, ideally facing south east and with a clear flight path in. Line the box with wood chips or shredded bark to cushion the eggs, but avoid sawdust or soil that may clog the drainage holes. The nest box is made from durable, exterior grade plywood and is supplied with a mounting bracket (fastenings not included).
Clean the open nest box once a year, in the autumn from September. The reliability of the suspension must also be checked annually.
