Siting of your Garden Bird Nest Box
The best height for a nest box is between 1.5m and 5.5m high or the box could be sited higher to prevent garden bird predators, such as cats. Open fronted nest boxes like these are best sited where there is some cover such as climbing plants and should face anywhere between north and southeast as to avoid strong sunlight and prevailing winds in the nesting area.
