Sparrow Block | Sparrow Nest Box
The Sparrow Block 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 'No Fixing Kit' option is suitable for building the Sparrow Block into new building brick or block work or you can select 'fixing kit' if you intend to fix the block to the surface of existing walls. We recommend the Sparrow Block be placed 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. Featuring a small entrance space to deter larger birds and predators, rear fixing points so you can fix to a wall, standard UK block size.

Sustainability at Green&Blue
Excuse the pun, but sustainability isn't just a buzz word for us at Green&Blue, it's embedded in the business decisions we make and every thing we do.
These are just some of the areas of business where we focus attention to be the most sustainable we can be;
The Green&Blue range is entirely British made - meaning visible supply chains and low product miles. We have worked with the same suppliers since the business was started back in 2005.
The Green&Blue range is designed to last for many years and we do our best to support our customers with repairs or replacement parts where any issues do arise.
The concrete range is made within our own Cotswold workshops, creating local employment and giving us full control. We use 75% waste material from the Cornish china clay industry within our concrete and are constantly reviewing material developments and processes to ensure we are using the best material we can.
We look forward to updating you soon on how we make sure our offices and workshops are running as sustainably as possible.
The Shred project , which Wildcare acquired with the purchase of Green&Blue in 2023, enables us to remove virgin grade packaging materials from our dispatch process - and allows us to work with our local community to remove recycling and to extend the useful life of cardboard.
Our boxes are UK sourced and made from FSC certified cardboard.
Our wraps and printed literature are printed with a print supplier who work from a state of the art sustainable building, and who are a carbon balanced printer, winner of the 'UK environmental company of the year' at the PrintWeek Awards.
We don't rest on our laurels and that is our promise to you. Sustainability is a journey with no end, and as we learn, as we question and as we grow we will keep this commitment at the heart of everything we do.
If you have any questions, any ideas or any feedback then please get in touch with our team, we can do more together than we can apart.
