The Multi-System can be installed in all types of buildings, whether constructed of concrete, brick, or timber.
So that you can meet the needs of various bird species, different types of front panel are available for use with the Main Cavity. This Main Cavity is supplied without a front panel which should be ordered separately.
The Multi-System has been used very successfully in major urban conservation projects to assist species that have become very rare. For example, Kestrels are welcome in cities because they help to keep feral pigeons away, and are therefore encouraged to occupy historic buildings in an effort to keep them clean.
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.
DIMENSIONS (MM): 445 x 415 x 415
WEIGHT (KG): 28 kg (without front panel).
SPECIES: Kestrel, Jackdaw, Swift (depending on front panel)
SITING: bridges, industrial buildings, houses, church towers, and barns. To meet the needs of various Bird species, different types of front panels are available for use with the Main Cavity. Ideally, the main cavity should be set 24cm into the wall.
Density Since Jackdaws and Swifts breed in colonies, it is advisable to place a number of Multi-System Boxes in close proximity to one another. Kestrels, on the other hand, do not seek the company of their own species when nesting. However, they will happily nest among colonies of Jackdaws and Swifts. One or two Multi-System Boxes on a building or bridge will suffice for Kestrels, while a virtually unlimited number can be set up for the other two species.
MAINTENANCE: The front panels can be easily removed for access. However, cleaning is not essential, which is an important factor when installing on inaccessible places such as bridges, cooling towers, etc.
