Developed in conjunction with TV’s naturalist and wildlife cameraman Simon King, using his many years of knowledge watching and photographing wildlife.
The design principle is that Robins prefer an open style nest box with easy access, but also like to be concealed from the prying eyes of predators. The entrance is open, but the nest space is both concealed behind the side wall and covered by the roof. The nester is lightweight and can be wired into a hedge or ivy or attached to a wall using the supplied spare loop of fixing wire. The base of the brushwood nester has a rattan landing platform with a low dividing wall separating the nesting or roosting space.
The nester is also suitable for other bird species such as wagtails and spotted flycatchers which prefer the same style of open-fronted nester.
