The 45mm hole on the front of this nest box makes it ideal for use by Starlings. Its construction material and design make it predator-resistant, as well as able to maintain a stable temperature inside. This makes it a perfect breeding site not just for Starlings, but also Nuthatches, Great Tits, and Blue Tits.
No nesting material needs to be added to be box, which is best located on the edge of a forest or in a forest itself, with several nest boxes hung in the same area as Starlings are prone to nest in groups.

These nest boxes are specially designed to help park, woodland, and garden birds, including common birds such as Great Tits, Blue Tits, and Robins; declining red-listed species such as Starlings and House Sparrows; and for use as specialist boxes for species such as Woodpeckers and Treecreepers.
Many of the nest boxes in this range use a material called WoodStone®, which is a combination of concrete and FSC certified wood. Using WoodStone® means the nest boxes are attractive and durable while providing greater insulation than traditional wooden nest boxes.
This aids the stabilisation of the temperature inside the box, protecting it from external daily fluctuations; a clear advantage for nestlings, incubating birds, and birds that use nest boxes as winter roosting sites.
WoodStone® nest boxes are also breathable, preventing condensation issues while still protecting any occupants from rain and wind. Birds may be able to start nesting earlier in boxes made of this material, with more young fledging successfully. Their sturdy construction is also a deterrent to nest box predators such as woodpeckers and grey squirrels.
