Gaps have appeared after 1 year

I bought the Apex nestbox last year and had Great Tits nesting early this year. Have just cleaned out the box but noticed that gaps have appeared on the Apex roof and side of the box where the two pieces join together. Have put the box back up but am worried that rain could get in and harm the birds if they nest next season.

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, I am sorry to hear about the gaps appearing in your box. Please can you contact our customer service team who will be able to assist you with this as it sounds like your box may be faulty. By Lizzie, on 16 Aug 2017

Apex classic nestbox

Received one as a welcome gift for joining the RSPB , A beautiful well made box. I put it up last year for the first time and was rewarded with blue tits rearing a family. We have just removed it to clean it this week but there is no way into it that we can see to do this. Is this us being silly or is it a bad design. Seems like we have to break it to get into it !!

RSPB response: Thank you for your review, glad to here that you had occupants in the first year. There should be two screws on the side, if you unscrew these you should be able to clean the nest box easily. If this is not the case please contact customer services who will be able to help.

Superior nest box

Now this is what I call a nest box. Sturdy construction, precision made and a sensible size to accommodate a large brood of small birds. Have installed it facing NE and can't wait for Spring to see results. A small observation - the ends of the mounting brackets should really be countersunk on opposite sides but how pedantec is that ?

Product information

This Classic style FSC timber 32 mm entry hole nestbox is suitable for a wide range of garden birds.

If you want to exclude larger species you can reduce the entrance hole to 25 mm with a nest box plate (R0110).

Made in the UK with thick FSC timber for strength and durability, this box has good insulation properties, with drainage holes and a side panel, secured with a screw, that pivots open for easy end-of-season cleaning.

Installing your nestbox

For secure and stable fixing, there are two hanging tabs attached to the back of the nestbox, one at the top and one at the bottom. These tabs make it quick and easy to securely fix it in place. Screws not supplied.

Which size nestbox hole for which bird?
25 mm - blue tit, coal tit, marsh tit
32 mm - great tit, tree sparrow, pied flycatcher, house sparrow, nuthatch, lesser spotted woodpecker. 32 mm entry holes can, if you wish, be reduced to 25 mm using a nestbox plate (R0110).

RSPB nest boxes are made with thick FSC timber and will survive for many years, even without the use of preservatives.
If you do want to protect your nestbox further, use a water-based preservative (preferably one that complies with standard EN71 part 3 as safe for children's toys). Such paint/preservative types are clearly marked on the container, and are available from DIY stores and hardware shops.
Preservatives should only be applied to the outside of the box. Apply in the winter, when there is a low likelihood of occupancy. This will allow time for any remaining volatile components to evaporate.
For more information about siting a nest box please see the Advice section of the main RSPB website.
