Nuthatches will readily adopt this box if you hang it reasonably high and close to the trunk of a mature beech or oak.
We recommend that you hang this type of Nuthatch Box 5KL in close proximity to Owl Boxes no 4 & 5. If there are no Owl Boxes available the the immediate vicinity, the oval nest box 2GR can be used as an alternative.
The Nuthatch usually occupies the larger available cavity. Litter(bedding) is not required. The Nuthatch builds its own nest from pieces of bark. As with all small birds, it is not necessary to insert material.
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.

SITING: It is advisable to hang the Nuthatch Box 5KL in parks and forests in direct proximity to the Owl Boxes No. 4 + 5. No sawdust or other similar material needs to be placed inside because the Nuthatch, in common with all other small Birds, will construct its own nest.
Position approximately 3 meters or more above ground with a clear flight path to the bird box.
MAINTENANCE: Easy to remove the front
