The Starling - Bird / Nesting box- Multi species - Handmade from FSC Birch

These bird boxes are handmade in our rural, Cambridgeshire workshop and built from the finest FSC certified, exterior grade Birch Ply. Once made, each box is finished with a couple coats of Danish oil to ensure that they are waterproof for all weathers. This finish is food safe once cured which ensures that if any birds do peck the box, they wont ingest anything which could harm them. 


With what seems the constant removal of hedges, bushes and trees there is a shortage of natural nesting sites in the Uk. This is thought to be one of the contributing factors behind the decline of some of our common birds. By putting up nest boxes like these you are providing an area where birds can safely lay their eggs and raise their young out of the way of predators.


Placement - 


Avoid obvious sun traps, such as south-facing walls, and ideally place the box so that the entrance hole is facing north-east. Fix the bird box at approximately 1.8m (6") high. 


The Starling is the biggest bird box we sell and has an opening which is big enough for a Starling, approx 45mm. Does this mean that nothing else will use the box? No, it doesnt, it just means it should be perfect for a Starling! 


We believe that we should make a change for the better where ever possible, in whatever that may be. Starling numbers have been declining year on year and as such we wanted to bring this nesting box out to give people another option in the fight to help numbers increase. This is taken from the RSPB website - "Starling numbers have declined markedly across much of northern Europe and the UK. The decline in the UK started during the early 1980s and has continued ever since. Recent data from the Breeding Bird Survey suggest continuing population declines affecting starlings in England and Wales since 1995."
