Blackbird Nester

This Blackbird Nester is handmade in the UK from solid FSC timber.

Product Details

It is designed in the form of a deep open ledge with an apex roof for shelter, to emulate just the type of spot that a blackbird likes to build its nest.

The Blackbird nester should be hung from its brass hook at a height of at least 1.5m preferably concealed in some foliage inaccessible by predators. The nestbox should be sheltered from the prevailing wind. You may find robins, dunnocks and wagtails which like an open-fronted nest box may also be attracted to build their nests here.

Leave the nestbox empty initially as blackbirds will bring in their own nesting material. Nests should be cleaned annually but only after you are sure the the nest is vacated after September. Blackbirds tend to have a long breeding season and may have several broods.

The blackbird nester is made from slow-seasoned FSC timber which being slow-dryed makes it very durable and this conscious choice eliminates the need for chemical preservatives. We also use robust screwed and jointed construction techniques for longevity.
