Red Squirrel Nest Box

The Red Squirrel Nest box is a handmade wooden nesting box for red squirrels which may also be occupied by grey squirrels. In the UK, red squirrels have declined massively in recent decades as a result of the loss of suitable coniferous woodland habitats and also the introduction of the American grey squirrel which out-competes the red squirrel for food.
