Schwegler 1HE brick nest box
This popular design is a lightweight nesting box made of plant fibre and is intended for installation in or on external walls of buildings of all kinds. Because of its special narrowing entrance it is safe against Magpies, Jays, Cats and Martens. When installing on a wall, please order the 1HE including Mounting Bracket.
