Traditionally birds seek out gaps in trees, buildings and whatever they can find to build their nests in. However, due to deforestation an ever increasing proportion of wildlife is struggling to find a home. This is one of the reasons why nest boxes have become so popular around the country to help house wildlife of all kinds as well as birds.
The makers of the Aruba nest box have utilised the best quality materials in the construction of this box. The wood used has been sourced from well managed forests (eco friendly) and has been treated so that it will last longer in our cold wet climate! It is also very easy to clean/observe as there is a front panel which opens to allow you access.
