Nest Box for Robins
Everyone loves to see these wonderful little birds with their bright red chests in their gardens. Often called the UK’s favourite bird, robins can be seen in our gardens throughout the year, especially during the summer months. Welcome nesting robins into your garden with our selection of nest boxes, designed for them.Read More
Robins are known for nesting in unlikely spots, such as in hanging baskets, in boots, sheds or even pockets. They may also construct their nests near the ground in hedges, piles of logs and other tight places that are fully-concealed from predators.
Female robins build the nests from leaves and moss. They do this as early as January if the weather is mild, though breeding season normally begins in March. They will normally lay their eggs between April and August and can produce between three and five broods per year with four or five eggs in each.
How can I help my garden robins?
Encourage robins to nests in specially-designed boxes. We offer a range of nesting boxes, which are ideal for our red-breasted friends.
- Apex Robin & Wren Nest Box
- Apex Nest Box Triple Pack
- Apex Open Fronted Bird Nest Box

Place the nest box in a dark and secluded spot, away from predators. Among vegetation, shrubs or creepers is ideal.
Offer your robins feed all year round from a bird table or ground feeder. We have a range of robin-friendly bird food available, which will provide them with essential energy and protein. Read our blog about a robin moment.
Wild birds need water as much as food for drinking and bathing. We always recommend putting fresh clean water out every day of the year.
