These cool Mr and Mrs Birdee nest boxes [2] are the perfect lure to get a flock of birds flying into your garden for shelter. Spotted at this year’s London Design Festival [3], these awesome bird shelters [4] by The Small Green Company’s [5] caught our eye with their unique design and simple purpose.

The Small Green Company [5] has made a name for itself creating eco-friendly and socially responsible products, and donating a portion of their proceeds to a tree-planting program in Niger [7]. Manufactured in the UK, the boxes are crafted from high quality birch plywood sourced from sustainably managed forests. Saving on packaging, the small nest boxes [8] come flat-packed with easy to follow instructions, providing the extra kick of assembling the boxes yourself!
