Wren / Robin Nest Box
This nest box for robins will help bring more wildlife to your garden. Traditionally birds find cavities in trees and buildings to build their nest to raise their young. However in recent times there has been a lack of mature trees across the country meaning there hasn't been enough nesting sites to go around. This is one of the reasons why nest boxes have become so popular around the country to help house wildlife.
This attractive nest box is ideal for many different types of birds. The gap is big enough for birds such as robins, wrens, blackbirds, spotted flycatchers and song thrushes.
The wren/robin nest box is made with quality, eco friendly materials. The wood used has been sourced from well managed forests and has been treated so that it will last longer in the british weather! It is also very easy to clean as there is a side panel which folds down to allow easy access.
