Siting advice

House martin nests should be sited on the wall directly under the eaves of a house, preferably out of direct sunlight and rain. North or east facing walls are ideal. However, nests facing other directions are still likely to be used. It is important that the nest is situated high enough for the birds to launch and fly away comfortably. If you have several house martin nests, then group them together for best results.

80% good quality.
The terracotta part is good, will undoubtable protect the House Martins from Magpie attack, unlike their own built house made of mud. Pity the wooden parts aren't as good; the backing to the box is a nice piece of timber, but the piece above is plywood, unclear why it is different, and a bit rough on the edge.
