BIRD CONSERVATION

Material: Air-permeable and long-lasting lightweight concrete, designed

for underground installation.

Design: The floor of both the Nest Box and Tunnel have a fine mesh grid to

keep out Rodents. The nesting chamber is protected with a removable lid

for cleaning.

Kingfisher nesting habits: This "flying" jewel tends to use two different

tunnels or tubes for its first and second brood. It is therefore advisable to put

two Nest Tunnels in the same steep slope, keeping them at least 70 cm apart.

Sand Martin nesting habits: Colonies of never less than 12 breeding

pairs of Sand Martins congregate on natural moving water or on naturally

formed cliffs, as well as in gravel and clay pits. The Nest Tunnel is supplied

with detailed installation and maintenance instructions.

External dimensions of tunnel: length 58 x height 15 x width 12.5 cm.

Outer nesting chamber: 26 x 26 x height 17 cm.

Inner nesting chamber: 22 x 22 x height 14 cm.

Weight: approx. 10 kg.

Order No. 00 640/0

Dipper and Pied Wagtail Nest Box No. 19

Kingfisher and Sand Martin Nest Tunnel

» DIPPER AND PIED WAGTAIL NEST BOX No. 19

Secure against small predators. Also suitable for Grey Wagtails.

Occupants: Dipper and Pied and Grey Wagtails, around buildings also

Black Redstarts. This very successful Nest Box is ideal for helping to ensure

the continued survival of these species. It can be used, for example, when

streams are being restored to their natural state. Because it is secure

against small predators, it is more effective than natural nesting sites for

ensuring breeding success.

Fixing: The brackets are adjustable and easy to install using screws or

bolts.

Cleaning: Because Dipper nests are usually infested with parasites it is

advisable to clean the nest box after the breeding season (i.e., from August

onwards).

Material: Plant fibre and wood-concrete (100 % asbestos-free).

Siting: Under bridges and on vertical walls which are directly adjacent to

natural, moving water which should be relatively clean. The No. 19 should

always be installed at least 0.5 m above the high water line. Practical

experience has shown that the box should always be placed above deeper,

flowing water, because Dippers tend to dive into the water if danger threatens. For

the Pied Wagtail, the No. 19 can also be used in wetlands.

External dimensions: approx. 19 x 19 x 37 cm.

Internal dimensions: 18 x 18 cm. Weight: approx. 4.7 kg.

Order No. 00 620/2

» KINGFISHER AND SAND MARTIN NEST TUNNEL

Kingfishers and Sand Martens have lost many of their natural nesting sites

where streams and rivers have been diverted, restructured or otherwise

"improved". Our Nest Tunnel provides a vital nesting opportunity in such

places, and also on natural waterways where no suitable sites are available

or where apparently suitable banks are too stony or have too many roots.

This tunnel was tested for decades and has been used successfully in many

projects for rebuilding waterways all over Europe.
