The SparrowBlock Sparrow nest box is designed to create nesting space for house sparrows within the framework of new builds or to be retrofitted within existing properties.
House Sparrow numbers have rapidly declined in recent years, falling to around half of their original recorded numbers and resulting in the birds being added to the red list of conservation concern. Whilst there isn't a single factor identified as the cause of these declines, experts suggest that providing more habitat will help to build colony numbers.
The Green&Blue SparrowBlock can be built into new buildings (integrated) or fixed to the surface of walls using a fixing kit (choose surface mounted option to receive a fixing kit). The block must be at least 3 metres from the ground with the opening facing North or East, ideally located under roof eaves and away from windows and vents as sparrows are easily disturbed.
The beautiful Sparrow Block nest box is designed and made in Cornwall using 75% recycled materials, features a small entrance space to deter larger birds and predators, rear fixing points so you can fix to a wall and is a standard UK block size.

Made from cast concrete using up to 75% waste materials from the Cornish China Clay industry.

Approx 8 kg (unpackaged)
The Sparrow Block should be positioned at least 3m from ground level, with the opening facing north or east, ideally under the eaves and away from windows and doors.
Build into course work using mortar mix as main build components in place of a standard brick or block. Or affix to wall using the rear fixing points.
Sparrows are protected by law so cleaning out nesting material can only be done outside nesting time, from September to January. Remove any nesting material and debris before replacing the front panel. Only attempt this work if you have appropriate means to access the block and a colleague to help.
