      Roosting pockets are best in a sheltered place, preferably facing south or east, out of prevailing wind that could drive rain into them. They should be fixed to a firm surface like a post or a tree trunk (using the wire clip provided), not swinging free in the wind. Choose to leave either the large entrance hole or small entrance hole facing out, as that will allow smaller or larger birds inside. Don't leave it with both holes open, as this could allow a through draft.

      Not what I expected but it is a great product
      I have recently bought these for my dad for Christmas and each beatbox is different in shape slightly. Be aware that sometimes the small hole is sometimes really small- too small for any bird, even a wren. However; I have chosen to use the bigger entrance on that box. One of them is slightly broken but there aren't any major issues-all in all this is a fantastic product that I would definitely recommend

      RSPB response: Thank you for your review, I am sorry to hear one of the items you received was slightly broken. Please contact our customer service team who will be able to arrange a replacement. We ensure that our roosting pockets meet the correct dimensions for birds to be able to gain access; if you feel you have received a faulty pocket as the entrance is too small, please also highlight this with our customer service team. Other than that, we are pleased to hear that you do feel this is a fantastic product.

      Winter warmth
      Very cute sanctuaries for my smaller feathered friends. I am going to install the six roosts amongst the dense ivy using cable ties, instead of the string they come with. I might even add some plastic roofing...?
      Hmmm....Half round guttering seems practical and cheap!
      Next purchase will be suet balls.....a really big box should see us through the winter! Fingers crossed ;)

      Review of roosting pouch.
      I am really pleased with the product. I have a wren family using a pouch near my window and I am so pleased to be able to help these lovely little birds. The adult bird has lined the pouch with moss and made it into a cosy home for the youngsters. I'm thrilled!

      No takers yet but looking hopeful
      I've places these three pockets in various places in my garden. The one in the hedge has attracted a lot of attention from a robin a long-tailed tit recently although i've not yet seen anything go in or out of them. At least they know that they exist should they need somewhere to hunker down.

      Robins like 'em!
      I've had mine for quite a while and they are rather dilapidated. I'd intended to dump them this spring and replace them. I have no idea whether they have been used for there original purpose or not but to my surprise and delight a robin family is up and running in the one we have in our tiny courtyard area. Four chicks, eyes open and looking good so far.

      great
      I hung the pouches on the trellis a bit hidden in the foliage and it took a while but I finally saw a wren living in one of them. I was over the moon and very happy with the purchase. I only had to replace the wire provided with a longer more flexible one.

      Poor quality, disappointed.
      These are cheap but poor quality, I suppose you get what you pay for. The holes are not uniform in shape or size and one of the three I got has more of a slit than a hole. It looks as though it has been squashed in from the side. Disappointed.

      RSPB response- Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear you were not happy with the product. Please contact our customer services team if you'd like a replacement or refund

      Not sure I've got it right!
      These look and seem ideal, and maybe the birds just need more than 3 months of winter to discover and get into them, or maybe I've just put them in the wrong place. More detailed instructions on how and where to install these would be greatly appreciated! I am a complete novice when it comes to birds so don't know if I can leave both holes open, and how 'sheltered' they have to be. Not sure if they need to be fixed to a branch or if can they swing from their top attachment...
