It seems to be more common for birds to be entering chimneys as their natural habitat is diminished. Unfortunately for some species of British birds which require old trees where they would nest in a hole on a limb, our intrusion into their natural habitat means they have less and less nest sites available and will look to roost or nest in alternatives structures, the chimney being one of them. If a bird falls down and is trapped in your chimney, it is important to have the bird removed as quickly as possible to prevent injury or stress.

Whilst it is generally considered best to leave chimneys open, it is also an open invitation to various species of birds including pigeons and jackdaws to take up residency in the chimney to roost or to nest.
By fitting a terminal or bird guard to the chimney pot,it will prevent the possibility of all animal entry.
