perfect for roosting or nesting for small garden birds which prefer an open fronted nest site such as Robins or wagtails.
Cosy roosting spaces out of the prevailing wind can be a life saver for small birds during harsh weather conditions. Without somewhere to shelter they use up vital energy reserves just trying to keep warm & if food is also scarce this can become critical for the bird’s survival.
Like our original small roost pocket, the Giant Nest Pocket has a sturdy inner frame to support the brushwood covering. We have designed in integral fixing loops so that the nester can be easily tied into suitable foliage or vegetation.
This giant roost nest pocket may also be used by nesting birds in Spring time. The larger entrance hole is more suited to species such as robins, pied flycatchers or wagtails. The entrance has a little rattan door step which serves as a landing platform as well as a cute little porch designed to cast rain away from the nester entrance hole.

Buglife is the only organisation in Europe devoted to the conservation of all invertebrates. We’re actively working to save Britain’s rarest little animals, everything from bees to beetles, worms to woodlice and jumping spiders to jellyfish.
There are more than 40,000 invertebrate species in the UK, and many of these are under threat as never before.
Invertebrates are vitally important to a healthy planet – humans and other life forms could not survive without them. The food we eat, the fish we catch, the birds we see, the flowers we smell and the hum of life we hear, simply would not exist without bugs. Invertebrates underpin life on earth and without them the world’s ecosystems would collapse.
Invertebrates are facing an extinction crisis
Today, thousands of invertebrate species are declining and many are heading towards extinction. Worldwide 150,000 species could be gone by 2050 if we do nothing.
Each invertebrate species plays a unique and important role in the web of life, but once lost, they cannot be replaced. Many invertebrates have incredible life stories yet to be told, and we literally don’t know what we are on the brink of losing.
Buglife’s aim is to halt the extinction of invertebrate species and to achieve sustainable populations of invertebrates.
We are working hard to achieve this through:
- Promoting the environmental importance of invertebrates and raising awareness about the challenges to their survival.
- Assisting in the development of legislation and policy that will ensure the conservation of invertebrates.
- Developing and disseminating knowledge about how to conserve invertebrates.
- Encouraging and supporting invertebrate conservation initiatives by other organisations in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
- Undertaking practical conservation projects that will contribute to achieving our aim.
