Our BirdBox kits are made to the British Trust for Ornithology recommended design for blue tits, great tits and other hole-nesting small birds. They are made from top quality wood that will last for years - you don't need to paint them with toxic preservatives.
The kit comes as a set of exactly cut and drilled pieces of wood and all the screws you need. You and your children can have fun on Boxing Day assembling the kit (there are full instructions and it only needs a screwdriver). Then fix it to a tree or shed in your garden and enjoy watching maybe ten generations of birds raising their families before you need to repair or replace your box.
Walden Countryside BirdBox Kits are made for us by Boatman Furniture in Great Chesterford as their contribution to our wildlife conservation work: so everything you pay (less the cost of the wood and screws) goes to helping run our nature reserves. Ben Boatman makes top-quality bird boxes to help us but he makes his living designing and building bespoke furniture for local homes.
