BIRD CONSERVATION ON BUILDINGS

Sparrow Terrace 1SP

» SPARROW TERRACE 1SP

Different species of Sparrows can be found around our human homes:

House Sparrow (Passer domesticus): These Birds thrive in areas cultivated

by man, from villages to large cities.

Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus): Also widely distributed throughout

towns and villages as well as the surrounding fields, farms, woodlands and

hedges, and woodlands bordering rivers and streams.

VV During installation VV Nest in 1SP

Occupants: House and Tree Sparrows, and in some instances other Birds

which use nest boxes such as Tits, Redstarts and Spotted Flycatchers.

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete.

Siting: On all types of houses in built-up areas, and on industrial and

agricultural buildings such as barns, sheds and factories.

Installation height: 2 metres or more above ground level.

Cleaning: Cleaning is advised but is not essential. By turning the safety

catch by 180° the front panel can be removed.

Dimensions of the three brood chambers:

H 16 x W 10.5 x D 15 cm (each).

External dimensions: H 24.5 x W 43 x D 20 cm.

Weight: approx. 15 kg.

Order No. 00 590/8

General details: While nesting and raising their young both types of Sparrow

feed exclusively on Insects, especially Arthropods (insects with segmented

legs). Therefore, their traditional role in keeping down pests and maintaining

the balance of nature is a very important one, though not always recognised.

Recently the numbers of both species have declined substantially and in

some areas they are now rarely seen. Long term studies have confirmed

this drastic reduction in their numbers across Europe. The causes include

the clearance and monotonous nature of rural areas, the sterility of many

gardens and landscaped areas, and the use of chemicals in agriculture and

gardens. The survival of these species is particularly threatened by widespread building renovation and clearance which denies them many nesting

possibilities.

VV Simple surface installation using

the plugs and screws supplied

VV 1SP built into a wall

VV Complete installation as a nesting block within brick or concrete walls. To avoid heat-

conduction please also use wall insulation, or install at a suitable depth in the wall
