New for 2018 is our Eco Small Bird Box. We’ve combined the best properties of recycled plastic and wood to create a unique box that will last for years whilst providing a comfortable nesting chamber for birds..
The box consists of a weatherproof outer shell made from UV stabilised 100% recycled plastic. Inside the outer shell is a wooden nest box to provide the ideal environment for birds to nest in. The outer shell has been precision cut and uses an ingenious system of tabs to hold it together. This further extends the lifespan ensuring that there are no fixings holding the weatherproof shell together that could rust or degrade over time. Internally there is a removable wooden nesting chamber with drainage holes for the birds to nest in. This is constructed from FSC Certified Oriented Strand Board, which is made from flakes of wood waste or from saplings thinned from forests to make space for larger trees. If you need to check or clean the box it is simply a case of twisting the fastening at the bottom and the wooden nesting chamber slides out.
The Eco Small Bird Box is designed and manufactured in the UK. The outer shell is made from recycled board which is itself made from discarded bale wrap, fertiliser bags and other plastic waste, gathered mostly from farms across the UK.
The larger 32mm attracts a large range of species including Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Marsh Tit, House Sparrow, Great Tit, Nuthatch and Pied Flycatcher.
Fixing to the wall or tree is easy with three concealed mounting holes in the back of the box (located opposite the entrance hole for easy access). Often this is the only fixing needed, but a further hole is provided at the base for use when necessary. The easiest way to mount the box is to remove the inner, fix the outer shell onto the tree, wall etc. then slide the inner roost chamber back into the box and secure it in place.
