2H Half Box

  
This traditional type has proved to be highly effective. It should always be installed on the outside walls of houses, barns, garden sheds, etc. It is designed to be hung so that the entrance is to one side (at an angle of 90 to the wall). The front panel can be easily removed for cleaning.

Please do not hang this type of box on a tree or bush because small predators can enter through the unprotected opening. 

If hung in the right place this open-fronted type will attract the species of birds referred to. 
This model has been successfully used for decades.

Supplied with hangers and Aluminium nail.

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete

Colour: Classic brown

Dimensions: Nesting chamber Ø 12 cm

Suitable for: Black Redstart, Pied Wagtail, Grey Spotted Flycatcher, occasionally Robin and Wren.

This particularly deep box can be hung at an open site or against outside walls.
A wooden insert, which can be removed for inspection and cleaning purposes, gives protection against predators because nesting takes place at the far end of the box. The design of the 2HW also ensures quick occupation when hung in relatively dark places due to the wide entrance.

It can also be used to attract Dippers and Grey Wagtails provided that the wooden insert is removed. The ideal location for Dippers and Grey Wagtails is near to natural running water and under bridges.

Supplied with hangers and aluminium nail.

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete

Colour: Classic brown

Dimensions: Nesting chamber: 15 x 21 cm

Suitable for: Black Redstart, Pied Wagtail, Grey Spotted Flycatcher, occasionally Robin and Wren.
