Red Squirrel Nest Box
Red Squirrel Nest Box is a handmade wooden nesting box for red squirrels that grey squirrels may occupy. In the UK, red squirrels have declined massively in recent decades due to the loss of suitable coniferous woodland habitats and the American grey squirrel’s introduction, which out-competes the red squirrel for food.
The red squirrel box should be sited high in mature woodland between 3m and 4m using the backplate mount. Face the box away from both direct sunlight and the prevailing weather. You may fill the box to half full with dehydrated nesting material such as leaves, straw or hay.
