This Schwegler House Martin eaves nest is designed for use throughout Europe. This nest is very quick and easy to install under the eaves as all you need to do is screw four screws on each side of the nest through the pre-drilled hole. These nests can be supplied in singles or doubles as they can be put up in groups for large colonies.

Occupants: House Martins.

Why are nest boxes important?

Natural nest sites are being lost having devastating consequences for bird species. Birds are an essential component of functioning ecosystems and have a direct impact on human populations and millions of other species. It is therefore important to provide our feathered friends with a home.

 

MATERIAL: Bowl-shaped nest made of air-permeable wood concrete and a backing board made of exterior grade, formaldehyde-free chipboard to prevent warping.

DIMENSIONS DOUBLE (MM): 460 x 110 x 140

WEIGHT DOUBLE (KG): 2.7

INCLUDES: Angled board with two nesting bowls.

SPECIES: House Martin

SITING: Under eaves on the external walls of buildings. House Martins never nest inside buildings. Install on the sheltered side of the building. Height above ground: Minimum height 2 m. Popular sites: Against a light background or wooden boards.

Although not absolutely necessary, it is advisable to coat the multiplex bracket with wood stain or (façade) paint before installing it, to minimise discoloration caused by the weather. Please do not coat the nest dishes, to ensure they remain fully breathable for successful breeding.

House Martins are very sociable and will more readily use nests that are arranged in pairs. Can be installed in groups to form large colonies.

MAINTENANCE: Can be used for years without cleaning. However, if possible it is advisable to inspect the nests frequently and to clean them if necessary.
