Whether it’s the height of summer or the depths of winter, watching the birds which call in on your garden is one of the most enjoyable of hobbies. As a nation of wildlife lovers, there are few things so relaxing as birdwatching. While the species may change depending on the time of year, there will always be some feathered friends around in search of shelter and a good square meal, and giving them a helping hand can be fantastic fun.
An open fronted bird box is one of the best ways of ensuring you not only attract a range of interesting birds to your garden, but keep them coming back to nest year after year. Once they’ve found a cosy little place to call home, many birds will return on a yearly basis to raise their chicks somewhere safe and familiar.
The open fronted bird box kits are easy to assemble, making them perfect for both children and adults alike. These nesting boxes can be a fantastic way of introducing your kids to the wonders of the natural world, giving them a sense of achievement when they see the birds exploring and setting up home in their new bird box. With all the panels made to measure, all you need to get you started is the easy to follow instruction manual, a small hammer and screwdriver, and you could be hanging your open fronted bird box the same afternoon.
The open front of this bird box makes it the perfect size for those slightly larger common garden birds. With your bird box hung somewhere within easy view of your house but not too close for comfort, you could see it attract the likes of robins, flycatchers and pied wagtails, as well as many other species.
Because we care about the natural world and the impact we are making on it, the open fronted bird box kits are made from FSC certified exterior grade birch plywood, so you know the product you are purchasing has been made from an environmentally friendly and sustainable source of materials. With the Forest Stewardship Council’s seal of approval, you can construct your bird box safe in the knowledge that you’re helping protect bird species and the country’s beautiful, natural woodlands.
Whatever age you are, there’s always great enjoyment to be gained from watching our feathered friends. Getting as many birds as possibly into your garden and seeing them come back time and time again is a richly rewarding experience, and one which is made all the more fun when you’ve had a hand in helping them set up home. By purchasing an open fronted nest box, you’re not only helping fill your garden with year-round colour and interest, but making sure you have many countless hours of happy garden watching.
