Bird Boxes and Feeders
Additionally we stock a selection of Bird nesting boxes and feeders, and due to several requests, Bat Roosting boxes. These are available through most of the year. They are all constructed from timber, rather than the usual plywood, to allow sufficient thickness of wood to insulate the birds during the cold months. The selection available has increased over the years to include the standard types below:
Starling (on request)
Great Spotted Woodpecker (on request)
Bat Roosting box
coconut shell fat feeder(supplied filled with seed/fat mixture.)
Additonally, most of the wooden items above, can be engraved, either with a persons/pets name etc., or a simple image. There are several options to choose from.
