The environment plays the main role

The environment plays the main role in the European Robin – it likes to nest directly on the ground (usually on a slope or shore), where it builds a nest under turf or grass, between roots, in pile of branches or at ground level, for example in dense bushes. It may also nest in cavities, semi-nest boxes or tit nest boxes, but this is not common and is more of an emergency in places where the environment described above is not available.

A natural environment

Robins prefer a natural environment and the placement of nest boxes doesn’t make much sense to them. You will help it by trying to preserve a more natural landscape with uncut vegetation, shrubs or pruning piles…

Nest boxes for tits

If you want to start with nest boxes, I recommend placing the tit boxes instead – thanks to the larger number of possible inhabitants, there is also a greater chance that someone will move in soon.
