This Blackbird Nester is handmade in the UK from solid FSC certified timber. Designed in the form of a deep open ledge with an apex roof for shelter. This emulates just the type of spot that a blackbird likes to build its nest.

Leave the nest box empty initially, as blackbirds will bring in their own nesting material. It would be best if you cleaned nests annually, but only after you are sure the nest is vacated after September. Blackbirds tend to have a long breeding season and may have several broods.

As with all our handmade habitats, the blackbird nester is made from slow-seasoned FSC certified timber. Being slow-dried makes it very durable, and this conscious choice eliminates the need for chemical preservatives. We also use robust screwed and jointed construction techniques for longevity.

The Blackbird nester should be hung from its brass hook at the height of at least 1.5m, preferably concealed in some foliage inaccessible by predators. The nest box should be sheltered from the prevailing wind. You may find robins, dunnocks and wagtails, which like an open-fronted nest box, may also be attracted to build their nests here.

Dimensions: 230 x 280 x 230 mm
