In soft blue,with a natural cedar shingle roof, the New England nest box is both stylish and practical.
With a hinged door for easy cleaning, the nester will be appreciated by small garden birds such as blue tits, great tits, finches etc.
As with all nesting boxes, site between 2 and 5 metres above ground, out of reach of predators. Ideally, face between the northeast and southeast, to avoid the sun and westerly winds.
Nesting is most likely during April and May and, in the event of chicks hatching, there will be frenetic feeding activity by the parent birds. Take care not to disturb during this time, as any intervention may result in the eggs or young being abandoned by the parent birds.
