This WoodStone nest box is manufactured from a combination of wood fibres and concrete – an ideal mix for protecting the occupants from predator attacks from woodpeckers, cats, and squirrels. Its insulating properties give the nest box a steadier internal temperature in comparison to ordinary wooden boxes, meaning young birds have a greater chance of surviving the breeding season.
Three variants are available:
The oval shaped entrance makes it ideal for Tree Sparrows, House Sparrows, Redstarts, Nuthatches, Great Tits, and Blue Tits, with Redstarts and House Sparrows preferring them to traditional round-hole nest boxes.
The 28 mm and 32 mm round-holed versions are likely to find favour with breeding Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Tree Sparrows, Pied Flycatchers, Nuthatches, Redstarts, and Crested Tits.
