Small Open Fronted Bird Box Design

Box v Nesting Bird List

    Natures Best Designs © 2017 All Rights Reserved.                     Cookies & Privacy Policy | Terms of Use                              Website by View Web Design.

Many birds, including the Robin and Wren and the Blackbird and Thrush prefer open fronted boxes as opposed to those with a small entrance hole. The main threat to this type of nest box is the danger from predators and the easy access to the nest site. Except for the Wagtail and Flycatcher, all open fronted boxes are well hidden in deep, thick undergrowth. This fact needs to be considered when sighting your own open fronted box. To further deter predators, it's a good idea to wrap the box in a "ball" of chicken wire.

Available in both oak and pine. This box measures roughly 300mm high, 150mm wide and 175mm deep in both pine and oak and comes in 3 types. The box incorporates many of the design and safety futures of the small hole box design including a hinged roof to aid end of season cleaning.

The Wren Box

This box has a very high front; about 140mm. The Wren is still an abundant species over the whole of the UK. 2 or 3 boxes could be clumped together to cater for future broods from original breeding pair.


The Robin Box

This box has a medium high front; about 100mm. The nests of the Robin are possibly the most difficult to find of all small British birds. Therefore this box should be sited in the most concealed  position possible. This box is also suitable for the Pied Wagtail.


The Spotted Flycatcher

This box has a low front to it; only about 60mm. This provides the nest with shelter from above while still allowing a clear outlook from the box.
