A purpose-built colony designed to encourage house martins.

This product is POA - please contact us for further details.

Providing a purpose-built colony can encourage the house martins to nest in a more convenient location where they can be appreciated without concerns of nuisance fouling. Also an ideal mitigation measure for sites undergoing renovation or development.

Occupants: House Martins and Swallows.

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.

This product is POA - please contact us for further details.

The house martin colony is made of Plywood and has 10 nesting bowls pre-assembled.

DIMENSIONS (MM): 1200 x 850 x 600

WEIGHT (KG): 50

SPECIES: House Martin

SITING: The colony can be placed freely against buildings, on a wall, or façade. The advantage of a colony is that it can be hung in a place where house martin nests are desired, this prevents them from nesting over a front door or window for example. Ten nesting bowls have been installed, but there is also enough space for the house martins to build a nest themselves.

This colony is mounted by 2 heavy bolts in the wall. On the colony itself, there are 2 fastening plates with openings in the form of an inverted keyhole so you can easily slide this and lift it over the inserted bolts. With the attachment to a façade, this wall version is the most natural nesting location for house martins. No nesting material needs to be added.

MAINTENANCE: If so desired, the nesting bowls can be cleaned in the late autumn if there has been (night) frost. The artificial nests can only be cleaned from the outside. The quality and stability of the wall must also be checked annually.
