A large box for nesting starling. This meets BTO recommendations, but we are researching whether smaller curved boxes will be used by the species. Branch stub entrance provides shelter and protection from predators. Top loop provides more comfortable carrying and a quick initial attachment point to the tree, whilst through the box nail points provide security for this large box.
Bark Boxes are constructed using an incredibly tough felt made of recycled polyamide combined with a cement and recycled cellulose fibre mix. The felt makes the construction of curves and more natural forms easy, the cellulose fibre will allow the outer layers to mellow and support lichens and mosses in time.
