Garden bird nesting boxes – LondonTreeSurgeons

Standard Box A box with a small circular hole cut in the front and usually placed at about 1.5 m (5 feet) or higher.     The size of the hole determines which bird is most likely to take up residence, for example:

  • 25 mm for Blue Tits
  • 28 mm for Great Tits
  • 32 mm for House Sparrows
  • 45 mm for Starlings
  • Open Box The open box is like the standard box except that most of the front is missing. These boxes usually attract Robins, Pied Wagtails, and Redstarts. Usually placed at about 1.5 m (5 feet) or higher.

    Ideally nest boxes should be put up in Early January, through to the end of February before the spring when birds start to nest. Birds will often choose a ‘well worn’ box, and so it is best to put them up and leave them up ready for the next nesting season.
