Starling Box 3S

Nest Box 3SV

Starlings are often seen as a problem at certain times of the year and in particular regions. They are highly adaptable, feed in flocks and can soon use up

readily available sources of food. However, we should not forget the ecological benefits that they provide as an important form of pest control. For example,

they limit the numbers of Crane Flies, Green Oak Leaf Rollers and Gypsy Moths. We supply two well-proven types of nest box, both of which are just as likely

to provide overnight shelter for Great Spotted, Middle Spotted and Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers. When there are fewer Starlings, other species such as Pied

Flycatchers and Nuthatches may breed in these boxes. Because of the relatively large entrance hole, the interior is well lit which encourages occupation.

Ornithologists advise that a perch below the entrance hole is unnecessary because the Birds will happily use the roof of the box. These boxes are supplied

with hangers and Aluminium Nails.

VV Starling

This nest box has more or less become established as the standard at home and abroad over several decades.

On houses, in gardens and in woodlands they form an important part of any nature conservation concept. They have

many advantages including the large diameter of the brood chamber, 14 cm, and a large entrance hole to make the

interior very light, and as a result not only Starlings but many other species are attracted to them.

Because the large entrance hole only provides limited protection, if there are a large number of predators robbing

nests in the surrounding area some of the 3SV versions (see below) can also be used.

Occupants: Starlings, Nuthatches (will reduce the entrance hole to 32 mm), Spotted and Middle Spotted

Woodpeckers, Pied Flycatchers, etc.

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete.

Weight: approx. 4.4 kg.

The predator-proof "Starling Box", in which the brood chamber has also been enlarged to 14 cm. With its protruding

entrance hole this model provides very good protection against Cats and Martens. However, the view into the

brood chamber is not obscured, and this is a major advantage when checking and cleaning the box. With its smaller

diameter entrance hole the 3SV nest box has proved very effective for other species too. For example its large interior

brood chamber and the shape of the floor make it very popular with Wrynecks (see table below).
