The Official* Cedar Open Fronted Nest Box
No ordinary wooden nest box. Quite simply, the Official Cedar Open Fronted nest box looks, performs and lasts better than other boxes.
Made exclusively from long-lasting cedar sourced from expertly managed Canadian forests, there’s no need for any maintenance. The timber ages naturally and attractively and, at 19mm thickness, gives excellent insulation and strength, tempting generations of birds into your garden.
Some species won't use nest boxes with holes. They prefer an open-fronted design, hopping into the box after alighting on a nearby branch.
To maximise chances of occupation, we suggest that you position the nest box discreetly within a quiet bush or hedge facing between North and South East. Open fronted Nest boxes for robins and wrens need to be lower, ideally below 2m and well camouflaged with vegetation. Wren nest boxes should be hung close to the ground - they prefer to hop through the undergrowth and shady places such as hedges, thickets, bushes, and heavily overgrown areas.
