Starlings are one of our best loved garden birds. Many remain in the UK for the whole year with more arriving to over-winter here. Starlings are a Red List species due to their decline over recent years both in the UK and across much of Northern Europe. A reduction in natural cavities and changes to building construction methods, mean that Starling nest sites have become rare, so providing new nesting sites is a great way to help this species. Starlings are gregarious birds and prefer to nest in colonies, so grouping several boxes together will encourage occupancy.
This Vivara Pro WoodStone® Starling Nest Box is manufactured from WoodStone®, a mixture of concrete and FSC Certified wood fibres. This durable material is very resistant to rot and also provides increased thermal insulation and protection from predators. WoodStone® is also breathable, ensuring that the nesting chamber maintains the optimum temperature and humidity levels. The WoodStone® Starling Box is covered by a 10 year guarantee.
The 45mm hole is the ideal size for Starlings.
