This ingenious wreath can be used all year round and has been developed by TV naturalist and wildlife cameraman Simon King OBE. His lifetime's knowledge of filming and observation of nesting birds has informed the design. The wreath can be decorated with seasonal adornments or by adding nesting wool, moss or extra foliage for cover. This unique wreath would make a fantastic addition to your garden.
Suitable for many small wild bird species such as robins, wrens and flycatchers who prefer an open style nesting site that's concealed from predators. In addition to nesting, the wreath can be used for shelter from harsh weather, allowing small birds to find cover and save their essential body fat which aids their survival.
A metal frame gives the inner sanctuary strength and the rattan landing platform and low wall provide the divide between the entrance and quiet zone. All surrounded by a rustic woven border. Made of sustainable brushwood the wreath is lightweight and easily hung against a tree trunk, wall or hedge.
Siting - Choose a site that is out of the prevailing wind.
Hanging - Attach the lightweight nester into hedges, ivy or trees using wire. Alternatively, attach the wreath to walls using the hanging string or supplied spare loop of fixing wire.
Maintenance - Carefully remove any previous nesting material between seasons. Alternatively, leftover materials can attract bumblebees to nest within. The decorative foliage may require regular replacement depending on the materials used and the effect you are trying to achieve. But that's entirely up to you!
