Dovecote Nest Box
Dimensions: 470 x 260 x 160 mm
This is our latest decorative bird nest box for small birds in the style of a traditional dovecote.
The roof has handmade timber shingles topped with a white finial. Black steel hoops around the flat-backed nest box offer structural stability with a water-based white paint finish.
The Dovecote Nest Box has a keyhole slot for hanging and an opening back for the nest box's annual cleaning. The design is strong and sturdy and made of FSC-certified timber. As a result, little maintenance is needed. It's recommended you paint the box annually, with a quality water-based paint, to maintain a tip-top appearance.
The box is suitable for small hole-nesting birds such as blue tits.
Siting your Nest Box
Ideally, it would be best if you situated your Dovecote Nest Box so that the hole faces North, North-East, away from the prevailing weather conditions. Site the nest box on a tree, wall, fence or building at least 1.5m – 2m above the ground to prevent easy access by cats and predators.
