This is a nest box to suit common garden hole-nesting birds, with an innovative side opening system.  A panel covering most of one side of the box is secured in place with a metal peg and is removable for inspection and cleaning. The roof, floor and other sides are permanently fixed, which improves weather resistance.

The box has a concealed keyhole shaped fixing hole in the back panel, and a further fixing hole at the base of the back panel to secure it in place if necessary.  It has holes for drainage and ventilation in the base.  With a 32mm diameter entrance hole for birds to optimise the chance of it being used for nesting, it can be used by the widest variety of garden hole-nesting birds, including Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Marsh Tit, House Sparrow, Great Tit, Nuthatch and Pied Flycatcher.  The hole size can be reduced to 25mm or 28mm using an appropriate hole plate (sold separately).

The Side Opening Nest Box is designed for use either on its own or with a camera fitted.  It is a little larger than other boxes and has internal grooves in the front and rear panels to simplify the fitting of a camera.  The box comes with an option of a translucent window to let some daylight in, for cameras which do not feature white lights for daytime viewing.
