An attractive green nest box made from 18mm exterior grade plywood and designed in association with BirdLife Netherlands to be suitable for the little owl (Athene noctua).
The large nesting chamber provides enough space for owlets to exercise their wings without leaving the safety of the nest box. It also has a double baffle entrance which helps to keep the internal chamber dark, prefered by this species. This design also prevents predation by other species such as tawny owls. A removable front panel provides access for cleaning or ringing and the front of the box has two perches which help adults leaving and entering the box, as well as providing youngsters with a place to perch when they are ready to fledge.
This box should be situated at a height of 3 - 5 metres above the ground on an isolated tree. Preferred locations are in farmland, parks, golf courses or any area which has a good mix of grass, hedge and copse. The box should be lined with wood chips or shredded bark which will protect the eggs. Avoid using soil or sawdust as this will clog up the drainage holes.
