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 hopes around the flat-backed nest box offer structural stability a water-based white paint finish.
The 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. Paint annually with water-based paint to maintain a tip-top appearance.
The box is suitable for small hole-nesting species such as blue tits.
Ideally, it would be best if you situated your Derham 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. Situated away from easy access by cats and predators.
