Flyte Garden Bird Nest Box, 28mm, made in Dorset by Flyte so Fancy.
These delightful bird nesting boxes with a 28mm access hole are for use by smaller garden birds such as Pied Flycatchers, Tits, Sparrows, Finches and Nuthatches.
The sloping roof protects against extremes of weather, offers maximum durability and can be screwed shut to prevent predators such as squirrels from stealing eggs or chicks.
The nest box lid is hinged with a brass hinge to give easy access to clear out any debris after use. All screws are double-plated and the hinge is solid brass, so your bird nesting boxes will last you for many years to come.
Handcrafted here in our Dorset workshop and constructed from the best quality, slow-grown, untreated Scandinavian Redwood. The 20mm FSC Certified close-grain timber has excellent insulation properties to keep the birds warm in winter and cool in summer.
Each nest box is finished in a nano-tech coating for long term preservation against fungal attack and rot. Perfectly bird-safe.
Available in Natural Green or Chestnut Brown, the colours are unobtrusive and will match most garden decor. All Flyte Nesting Boxes carry our Flyte so Fancy Quality Stamp.

Siting of your Garden Bird Nest Box:The best height for a nest box is between 1.5m and 5.5m high. However, if the area is prone to visits from the neighbourhood cat population, then the box could be sited higher to prevent these garden bird predators.
The box should face anywhere between north and southeast so that the entrance will avoid strong sunlight and the prevailing wind direction.
