Bird Houses/Nesting Boxes


  • This rustic style woodpecker nest box is perfect for attracting these birds to your garden.
  • This nest box will provide a safe place for the woodpecker to nest or roost in.
  • This woodpecker nesting box encourages natural nesting habits with a simple 'pilot hole' drilled into the wood allowing the birds to excavate the nest themselves by enlarging the entrance to their preference.
  • The box has a side opening door which can be used for emptying and cleaning the box once the woodpecker has left.
  • There is an extra thick shaped bowl at the bottom for their eggs.
  • Made from 100% fsc pinewood.
  • Measures: (H) 54.5 x (W) 19 x (D) 23.5 cm
  • Woodpecker boxes need to be 3-5m high on a tree trunk with a clear flight path and away from disturbance.
  • Nestboxes are best put up during the autumn.
  • Breeding usually starts from mid-April.
  • Some birders recommend that the box is filled with wood chips pressed together to create a soft-hard composition as woodpeckers will “excavate” the wood chips from the nest box as they would excavate pulpy dead wood from the inside of a dead branch.
  • Common types of woodpecker in the UK are the green woodpecker, the great spotted woodpecker, the lesser spotted woodpecker and the wryneck.
