Natural nesting sites in the Irish landscape have declined due to human destruction and property construction over the last number of years.

Great tits require a slightly larger entrance hole to their nest than most other common garden birds. With a slightly larger hole, this nest box will allow the Great Tit a chance of finding a safe nesting spot for the nesting season. The box will also support other Irish wild birds such as Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Tree Sparrows, and the Pied Flycatcher to make your garden their home. In addition, you will notice other wild birds using the nest box to shelter from bad weather and stormy nights during the harsh winter weather.

This nest box has been constructed to an approved design and has been finished with environmentally-friendly approved paint. Its structure is made from an FSC approved pine and has a sturdy bitumen roof. A door on the side of the box allows for easy cleaning in the Autumn when it is not in use.

The box should be hung 2-4m from the ground, on a tree, creeper or wall, out of direct sunlight and prevailing wind and rain. Ensure that nothing is blocking a direct flight path for the bird to enter.

Suitable for:

  • Great Tit
  • Pied flycatcher
  • Tree sparrow
  • Coal Tit
  • Blue Tit

        the story of the producer

        Connecting to Nature

        Biodiversity & Wellbeing - feeling closer to the wider natural world is important for us all.

        Connecting to Nature aims to raise happiness levels by introducing the birds and the bees to households nationwide. They produce Irish Native Wildflower Seeds on their own sites in Faithlegg, Co Waterford, and the mixtures are curated to provide both food for wildlife and colour throughout the year.

        Their ethos is simple; being connected with nature is about feeling close to the wider natural world, it’s a relationship that helps us feel good. Sowing wildflowers and feeding birds are a wonderful way to feel closer to nature and bring wildlife closer to you.

        The business is the brainchild of Julie Power, whose Waterford-based family have been in the seed business for six generations, initially established in 1859 as Power Seeds which operated from Ballinakill, Dunmore Road and later from Glenville where the remnants of the old seed plant can still be seen today.

        “You don’t have to be in the countryside to connect with nature, all you have to do is create an environment that consistently attracts birds and bees”.
