Siting & positioning:
Wrens like to nest near the ground, they are not particularly good flyers, preferring to hop about in the undergrowth. They like shady places - in hedges, thickets, heavily overgrown areas and bushes as well as balconies. Hang the nest box in undergrowth, in a shady place. It can also be placed upon a pile of brushwood or garden clippings. If hung in a totally unobstructed place it will also attract other types of birds that nest in holes and cavities, including blue tits, coal tits and great tits, as well as tree and house sparrows.
Cleaning and inspection:
The nest box, which comprises two shells, ideally should be cleaned during the autumn or winter months. To do this, remove the cable from which it is suspended. The upper shell can be easily lifted off the lower one. When cleaning has been completed simply place the two halves together again and secure using the cable.With it`s speckled green exterior the "Ivy" colour blends well with the surrounding undergrowth, thereby providing a well-hidden nest site.
