Alpine Nest Box, Nest Boxes & Habitats

The Alpine Nest Box is a similar design to our Alpine Open Nest Box, however, it comes in a range of different sized openings - 32mm, 28mm or 25mm hole to suit all different types of bird. 

The 32mm hole is the most common, allowing a variety of birds from House Sparrows and Nuthatches and smaller birds. 

The 28mm hole is suitable for birds such as Pied Flycatchers, Great Tits and Tree Sparrows. 

The 25mm hole will allow most Tits from Coal, to Marsh and even Blue Tits. 

The removable front panel allows safe and easy cleaning at the end of the nesting season. 

Each nest box is supplied with steel fixing brackets and screws for easy installation. 

A metal cover plate will be supplied with your nest box which will allow you to make that nest box entrance hole the size that you ordered. 

We use solid FSC certified timber in all of our products which, along with the sturdy construction and weatherproof finish, creates long-lasting, quality nest boxes. 

Height 330mm
Width 170mm
Depth 195mm
Hi, What size hole would you recommend for Blue tits? Also are these able to be accessed to clean out or would we have to remove the roof and re fit?

Many Thanks

Hi i would recommend a 25mm hole for a blue-tit, in regards to cleaning the nest box all you'll have to do is unscrew the front of the nest box off and clean the nest box out 1-2 times a year.

Or you can buy a standard size 32mm hole in the Alpine nest box and buy our nest box cover plate set which then enables you to have 3 different holes in the nest box for the price of 1 alpine nest box saves you buying a nest box with different hole sizes in. 

Cover plate set

Hope this helps.

Thanks Chris

I have just got a nest box as a present via , it looks nice and of good quality.

I see that the nest boxes are brown, what kind of surface treatments have you used ?, and what kind of wood treatment you recommend ?

On other home made nestboxes I am testing the wood treatment product from, Do you have any experience with that product ?

Best regards

Hi Tim,

We use a water based wood preserve on all our products, which gives it that nice golden brown colour, we use a company called Protek in the UK, we had a special mixed made up for us about 10 years ago and have used it since, if you check out there website you'll find lots a different finishes.  


ps... I haven't used sioox before no sorry.

Thanks Chris

Hi I have a wireless bird box camera from green feathers , would this bird box be suitable to install the camera ? I have had nesting blue tits this year and would love to be able to see them. Any advice would be great to help me find the correct box.
Thank you in adavance.

Our alpine nest box isnt quite high enough to fit the camera inside, but we can offer you a camera nest box suitable for the camera if you ring us up to place the order.

Thanks Chris
