Sparrow Nest Boxes
House sparrows have been a vibrant and important part of our garden bird community for centuries. However, this once common and charismatic little bird is in widespread decline and they have even disappeared from some parts of the country. Providing them with a safe nesting space is a wonderful way to boost their future survival.Read More
Introduce a nest box to help sparrows
House sparrows like to nest under cover, so often nest in roof spaces, barns and outhouses. They construct their nests from a variety of materials, including straw and grass. Due to the introduction of uPVC rooflines and the restricted access they allow, their natural nesting habitats are in decline. Studies have also shown sparrow numbers are dwindling due to other reasons including the reduction in availability of favoured foods, disease and pollution.
Make a new house for this endearing garden bird
If you want to stop sparrows from nesting in your roof or loft, giving them their own nesting space is ideal. Thanks to their love of cavity nesting, attracting them to nest boxes is not hard. Breeding normally starts in May, the first of two or three clutches.
Sparrows are naturally communal nesters and enjoy the company of other sparrows. All our nest boxes designed for sparrows replicate their natural nesting preferences and are durable and low-maintenance. These include wood, woodstone and woodcrete choices.

Your house sparrows will also enjoy communal feeding. Use seed and peanut feeders with plenty of space, so a handful of birds can feed together. Read our blog about the gardener’s friend.
Ensure your garden birds always have water for drinking and bathing, all year round.
