Open Fronted Robin & Wren Box, made in Dorset by Flyte so Fancy.
Blackbirds, Wrens, Spotted Fly Catchers, Song Thrush, Pied & Grey Wagtail and Robins prefer a classic open fronted design nest box.
Our design incorporates an overhanging roof to protect against extremes of weather with drainage in the base to allow any moisture to escape.
The roof is held in place with a screw to prevent predators such as squirrels stealing eggs or chicks.
Handcrafted here in our Dorset workshop and constructed from untreated, slow-grown, Scandinavian Redwood. The 20mm thick 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. All Flyte Nesting Boxes carry our Flyte so Fancy Quality Stamp.
Available in Natural Green or Chestnut Brown, the colours are unobtrusive and will match most garden decor. All screws are double-plated and hinges are solid brass, so your bird nesting boxes will last you for many years to come.

Siting of your Garden Bird Nest Box: The best height for a nest box is between 1.5m and 5.5m high or the box could be sited higher to prevent garden bird predators, such as cats.
Open fronted nest boxes like these are best sited where there is some cover such as climbing plants and should face anywhere between northeast and southeast to avoid strong sunlight and prevailing winds in the nesting area.
