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

Hi,

I have just got a nest box as a present via Greenfeathers.co.uk , 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 sioox.com, 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.  


Protek


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.

Hi,


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
