The Flyte Sparrow Terrace Nesting Box. Made in Dorset by Flyte so Fancy.
Sparrows are social creatures and like to live in groups, so our sparrow nest box terraces provide a home for three nesting families.
The sloping roof protects against extremes of weather and offers maximum durability. It can be screwed shut to prevent predators such as squirrels from stealing eggs or chicks. The nest box is hinged with brass hinges to give easy access to clear out any debris after use.
The 20mm FSC approved close-grain Scandinavia Redwood timber has excellent insulation properties to keep the birds warm in winter and cool in summer. Each nest box is finished in a Nano-Tech coating for long term preservation against fungal attack and rot. Perfectly bird-safe. All screws are double-plated and the hinges are solid brass, so your bird nesting boxes will last you for many years to come. Available in Natural Green shade, the colour is unobtrusive and will match with most garden decor.
Overall (external) measurements: Width: 40cm; Height: 30cm; Depth: 15cm (front to back); Entry Hole Size: 3.5cm
All Flyte Nesting Boxes carry the Flyte so Fancy Quality Stamp.
Siting of your Sparrow Terrace Nest Box:
The best height for a nest box is between 1.5m and 5.5m high. However, if the area is prone to visits from the neighbourhood cat population, then the box could be sited higher to prevent these garden bird predators. The box should face anywhere between north and southeast so that the entrance will avoid strong sunlight and the prevailing wind direction.
