Nest Boxes

When monitoring nests, remember the adult will desert the nest if disturbed.

Siting a nest box.

Fix your nest box 1.5 to 5 metres above ground level.

Avoid facing into strong sunlight, prevailing winds or rain.

Place out of reach from cats & away from perches that could be used by predators.

Keep away from the bird table as this will put off potential occupants.

Avoid siting two boxes close together to avoid rival male aggression.

Be patient.

Each autumn, check vacant & remove to clean with hot water & lightly dust with pyrethrum powder.
