Nesting Material

Hi everyone,

I have blue tits nesting in my nestbox this year which I'm really pleased about. I wanted to put something out which they can use in their nest. Could you please advise if this would be suitable? It says it's OK for pet birds, but doesn't mention wild birds. 

  • It will be fine - it's a natural fibre (ie not of plastic origin), though they will happily use free stuff like dog hair (if you have a shaggy hound you have to comb regularly). Apparently Husky fur is the best! Stuff it in a fatball holder or similar & they'll help themselves
