Perhaps the most important in fastening is that the Goldeneye has direct possibility to approach the nest. In addition, you must make sure that there isn’t any sharp branches or rocks underneath the nest box, that could hurt the nestlings jumping from the nest. The nest box can be far from the beach, 100 metres isn’t too far for the nestlings if the environment is otherwise favourable.
The nest box needs much padding. A 10 litres’ bucket is appropriate amount for this nest box.
