Buying a nestbox

Buying a cheap ready-made nestbox could cost you more in the long run. 

They’re often made from thin, low-grade timber that offers poor insulation against sweltering summer heat and bitter frosts. And chances are they’ll start to warp after a couple of damp winters, quickly rendering them unusable.

For real quality, durability and genuine value look no further than these wonderful boxes – the official choices of Nestbox Week.

Choose the natural beauty of cedar or super-tough Woodcrete. Both boxes will reward you with years of dependable performance, providing a warm, secure home for generations of birds.

National Nestbox Week is an established part of the ornithological calendar. Celebrated from February 14th each year, it puts the spotlight on breeding birds and asks everyone to put up more nestboxes in their local area.
