WHERE TO PLACE A NEST BOX

WHERE SHOULD A BOX BE PLACED?

  • Fix the bird box two to five metres up a tree or wall, out of the reach of cats

 

  • Unless there are trees or buildings that give the nest box shelter, it is best facing between  north and south east.  This avoids strong sunlight and the wettest winds.

 

  • Tilt the box forward slightly so that any driving rain will hit the roof and fall clear
