Birds do not only need shelter during the breeding season. Cavity-nesting birds will need somewhere overnight to shelter from harsh winter weather, so they are not drained of vital energy. One easy and inexpensive way to help is by hanging roosting pouches, where birds can huddle together for warmth.
Our roosting pouches are made from natural materials, such as reeds and grasses, so it resembles the birds’ natural environment and the small nooks and crannies within trees. You can also provide our bird nesting material for birds to line their roosts. These pouches are durable, so will last several years.
It is common for several species, such as goldcrests or wrens to share a single roost overnight to conserve heat. Blue tits, great tits, finches and robins will also love using them.
Where should I put my roosting pouch?
Roosting pouches should be located in sheltered spaces, ideally facing east or south, so they are out of the way of prevailing winds. Attach them securely to a surface, such as a tree trunk, fence or wall, or within a bush. Never hang them so they are swinging in the wind. Read our blog about how birds stay warm during cold winter nights.
You can spread a few around your garden to encourage a variety of species to take up residence. Alongside your birds, beneficial insects such as ladybirds, may enjoy using them too.
