The Red Squirrel Nest box is a handmade wooden nesting box for red squirrels, which grey squirrels may also occupy. In the UK, red squirrels have declined massively in recent decades due to the loss of suitable coniferous woodland habitats and the introduction of the American grey squirrel, which out-competes the red squirrel for food.

This nest box has a host of features that ensure that the occupants are safe from predators such as pine martens.

  • Deep nest box
  • Two entrance/exit holes – one on the front centre and one on the side
  • Internal and external ladder features enable young to climb the slippery sides of the box
  • Perching ledge that needs to fit on the box upon receipt
  • The pitched roof which sheds rain away from the nest box Removal of the front panel to allow box cleaning
  • Slow-seasoned untreated FSC-certified timber is used to negate the need to use any chemical preservatives which may deter sensitive mammals from using the nest box

The red squirrel box should be sited high in mature woodland between 3m and 4m using the backplate mount. Face the box away from both direct sunlight and the prevailing weather. You may fill the box to half full with dehydrated nesting material such as leaves, straw or hay.

Breeding red squirrels are protected under the Wildlife & Countryside Act, so a licensed worker may only inspect an occupied nest box.

Dimensions: 545 x 245 x 290 mm
