Where will I find a birdhouse in the shape of a real home?
The following websites offer birdhouses and also bird feeders in a variety of house shapes. The most architectural is the Hanging Bird Townhouse, £45, from Berry Red. Also look at Sparrow & Finch, where birdhouses are named after well known hotels. There are small houses for wall fixing, such as The Berkeley, £59, Four Seasons, £99, and The Metropolitan, £35, as well as tall stand-alone models such as Claridges (pictured), with its tiled roof, £395. Try Garden Trading, for the Wooden birdhouse, £17.50. Not on the High Street supplies birdhouses from a number of small companies, including a Country Cottage, £44, and Beach Hut models, from £49 each.
