wool tangles around the feet of youngthis wool gets tangled around the feet of young birds. Today i found just a leg left of a blue tit that had fledged from the nest only to have ended up hanging in front of the bird box and obviously fell victim to other predators. The leg that was left had its foot well and truly tangled in the wool....poor thing. In future i would recommend using hay instead!
RSPB response: Thank you for your review, and sorry to hear about this blue tit. Just a word of caution that this nesting material should not be put inside the nest box, but left around the garden, or in a wool pot for the birds to collect and use as they wish. If put in to the box in large lumps it could well be a hazard, and we recommend against this. This is natural wool, which is widely used, and has been used by birds for hundreds of years. Birds do not need hay or any other material putting inside a nestbox for them, they can build their own nests. By john, on 18 Jun 2015
