Forget the old wooden spartan bird houses that you thought you knew. Homebase hasn't created just any old birdhouses.

These little bird boxes are stylish recreations of actual houses in miniature. They've even created a pub and Tardis shaped birdhouse.

We never thought we'd get home jealousy of a bird. But if we had wings we'd happily move into one of these picturesque homes.

These kitsch little bird boxes have already caused on Instagram. A shot of the little homes posted on the brand's Instagram feed to celebrate National Nest Box Week quickly clocked up 325 likes.

'Aww this is adorable,' commented one fan.

'How cuteeee,' wrote another.

Here are a few of our favourite...

Homebase has called this a police box feeder, but we love it because it looks just like a mini Tardis. Your winged garden friends might not be able to hide away inside this Tardis, but they can stop by for a quick nibble at the base.
