Woodpecker nests encourage these beautiful but elusive birds to visit your garden by mimicking their natural nesting environment.

Attracting woodpeckers

Woodpeckers in the UK are present throughout the year but are most active during the springtime. Though they are less present in our gardens than other birds, they can be attracted by making thoughtful touches, you can roll out the welcome mat. Providing shelter and nesting places is a great way to encourage woodpeckers to visit your garden, as well as offering ample food and water, such as peanuts, fat and suet balls or sunflower seeds. Woodpeckers hunt insects, so leaving a small area of your garden with longer, untamed grass to hide and hunt in will also help.

Why choose Ark Wildlife?

Woodpecker nest boxes are intricately designed to cater to our native woodpeckers (including the green woodpecker, great spotted woodpecker, lesser spotted woodpecker and wryneck). The nest boxes include a simple “pilot hole” which encourages woodpeckers to mimic natural behaviours by enlarging the hole themselves. All of the woodpecker nest boxes in our catalogue also come with an additional Nest Box Starter material, giving you the best chance of attracting these elusive birds.

Woodpecker habits

Our feathered percussion artists typically nest in April or March, and can lay anywhere between four to six eggs at a time. The eggs take around two weeks to hatch, and the chicks leave the nest around three to four weeks after hatching.
