The BTO’s National Nestbox Week, a highlight of the ornithology calendar, returns on February 14th – 21st February and leading garden decoration specialist, Deco-Pak is encouraging customers to get their gardens, yards and balconies ready for our feathered friends.
The RSPB recently reporting that the song thrush population has plummeted by 76% in 40 years, and house sparrows along with other small garden birds are also witnessing a similar decline as hedgerows and woodland habitats are continuing to be lost. With the loss of natural places suitable for nesting increasing, it has never been more important to conserve our native breeding birds. Providing well designed hibernaculum such as nest and roosting boxes for them can really help and Deco-Pak has the perfect range for retailers to stock for customers to purchase to preserve the population of avian visitors.
With sustainability at the heart of the business ethos, Deco-Pak’s product lines are designed with both carbon footprint and material longevity in mind. Made from FSC wood, these sustainable wildlife havens tick all the boxes for eco gardens and will provide warm and safe homes for the garden birds in the winter weather. All boxes are painted with a water-resistant coating, so they can survive the outside elements and support Deco-Pak’s mission to protect wildlife and encourage the growth of the UK’s bird population.
Split into eight individual collections ranging including the Village, Classic, Hatchling, Mood, Nestling, Printed and Signature, there is a nestbox to suit every outdoor space. If you’re looking for a bird box that’s different from the norm, Deco-Pak’s GIMA Award winning ‘Quintessentially British’ range features unique designs including a garden shed, wine bottle feeder, London Underground box and 10 Downing Street, all enhanced with charming features that really set them apart from others on the market.
From modern minimalist designs featuring a beautiful roses and poppies print, to whimsical creations including beach huts, cottages and farmhouses, Deco-Pak’s nestbox range provide a quirky gifting opportunity, as well as providing a safe breeding environment for birds to return to the garden year after year.
Craig Hall, Marketing Director at Deco-Pak said; “With the news that our natural nesting sites are declining, it is vital to take small but meaningful actions in the garden to help the bird population. Our nest boxes are the perfect solution and come in all shapes and sizes to provide birds with a safe place to rest and raise their young, are vital to their survival, as well being a decorative addition to your garden. The year-round market for wildlife-friendly gifts is a key growth area for garden retailers. Awareness weeks such as National Nestbox Week and RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch are ideal opportunities to get involved with and get both adults children engaged with nature.”
