New England Nest Box

Nest box perfect for small bird species such as blue tits, coal tits and marsh tits.

With its real shingle roof and lap board sides you’ll think you’re in New England. The silver hole protector helps to prevent larger birds damaging the entrance to the box and gaining access inside.

Available in green or yellow, these nest boxes would be a delightful addition to any garden.


The nest box should be sited on a tree, wall or garden fitting at least 1.5m – 2.5m above the ground (preferably in a place where it cannot be accessed by cats and predators). The ideal aspect is facing east; SE and NE are also fine. The box should be left empty as wild birds will bring their own nest material into the box.

Monitoring & Inspection

Nesting is most likely during April and May and in the event of chicks hatching there will be frenetic feeding activity by the parent birds. Take care not to disturb during this time as any intervention may result in the eggs or young being abandoned by the parent birds.


The nest boxes are made from slow-seasoned sustainably sourced timber and may be painted annually with matching water based paints to maintain their appearance.

The nest box may cleaned out of any old nesting material and disinfected with a suitable product outside of the breeding season (Sept to Feb). To open, swing the brass catch to the upright position and pivot the nest box side, by opening at bottom.

Size: 250mm x 200mm x 180mm
