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.
