Super-elegant and super-easy-to-hang, this will attract all manner of smaller garden birds.
Every garden should have a bird box, and this is one of the most appealing that we’ve come across: lovingly hand-made to create a cosy refuge and nesting space.
Choose a sheltered area and use the single screw hole to fix the box between two to four metres from the ground. Birds generally like a short ‘direct run’ at their nesting site, so find a spot where there are no immediate obstructions to their flight path (your washing line, for instance!) The wall of your house, a fence post or a tree trunk will provide a perfect base. The RSPB recommends avoiding a directly south-facing wall, unless there is some shade to mitigate the direct sun.
Nesting birds are endlessly fascinating, and bring a whole new dimension to the enjoyment of your garden.
Beautifully-made and very obviously not mass produced, this would make a very thoughtful gift for any nature lover.
