A small open fronted nest box from the professional Vivara Pro range, with a low front panel for easy cleaning. This box is also part of the WoodStone® range of products that are manufactured from concrete and FSC wood fibres. The WoodStone® material will not deteriorate over time, has a 10 year guarantee and will act as a safeguard against many predators. In addition to this, the WoodStone® material acts as an insulator, meaning that the temperature is consistent within the nest box, in comparison to the variable temperature change in a standard wooden nest box.
These open nest boxes will be used by Robins, Spotted Flycatchers, Pied and Grey Wagtails, Song Thrushes, Black Redstarts and also Wrens if the box is well hidden.
Birds that occupy the open next boxes prefer their nesting sites to be hidden. If sited high on a wall or tree amongst Ivy or similar climbing vegetation, the box is more likely to be occupied by species such as Robins and Spotted Flycatchers. Siting it low and dense vegetation, species such as Wrens and Song Thrushes are more likely to occupy the nest.
Available in brown or green.
The ideal height to install your nest box at is between 1.5M and 3M.
Maintenance: Birds will clean their own nests before each breeding season, however we suggest that you clean them out at the end of the breeding season, around October time. In doing this you may encourage them to return the following year. This box has a removable front panel for easy cleaning.
