Product description

This Classic style FSC® certified timber 32mm entry hole nest box is suitable for a wide range of garden birds.

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

Made in the UK with thick FSC® certified 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 nest box

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.

With a wide range of expertly-designed bird houses to choose from, you can easily provide a safe, welcoming home in your garden for different wild birds. RSPB Shop also provides advice on where to locate your bird house. Help us give nature a home!

advice

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

RSPB nest boxes are made with thick FSC® certified timber and will survive for many years, even without the use of preservatives.
If you do want to protect your nest box 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.

Instant hit
The house is sturdy and looks great. Easy to put up, which we did in January, not expecting much as we don't have many garden birds.
However, a pair of blue tits that seem to feed regularly in a neighbours garden took up the box in March. They now feed in our garden, as well as next door's, making their shuttleruns back and forth feeding their current brood.
It was a hit!

The only even better if would be a hinged lid to be able to monitor how the young are doing (of course following the BTO guidelines as to not disturb). But for the price, the build quality is great, it seems as though it will last a while and it obviously works for the birds!
