Hedgerows and large trees are disappearing from the natural world, so now more than ever, it is important to provide nesting opportunities for wild birds in our gardens. Our UK-designed Barrel Bird Nester is perfect for a variety of small wild birds to nest and roost in your garden. Safe from predators with its deep cavity and secured lid, built from FSC® Timber from well-managed forests. With its unique and traditional design, the Barrel Bird Nester is an attractive addition to your garden or an ideal gift.
The Barrel Nester is ideal for a variety of small wild garden birds.
Where to site your Nester
Make sure your nester is located away from feeders, and bird baths and kept out of prevailing winds. Position it between 1.5 – 3 meters high and ensure it faces between
north and southeast.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Clean out your nester annually in the late Summer/early Autumn. Remove the roof by unscrewing the single screw located on the side of the barrel. The barrel and hoops will age naturally to give an even more authentic look. However, you can treat the wood with an acrylic exterior wood finish every 2-3 years.
