About this product

Please note shipping requirements: This box must be delivered on a pallet incurring a minimum shipping charge of £35.00 plus VAT for standard delivery in the U.K. We will advise you of the actual cost by email before we process your order.

Kestrels in the UK have declined dramatically since the 1970s, most likely in response to changes in agricultural practices and land-use. They have adapted quite readily to man-made environments, however, and can thrive in busy urban areas, provided sufficient prey is available. Installing a kestrel nest box near to a railway cutting or brownfield site, where birds are likely to hunt, is therefore an excellent way of providing a safe, dry space for them to nest and raise their young.

The 2TF is designed to be installed on the external surface of a building, wall, chimney or industrial plant, and will provide a neat and unobtrusive addition to the structure. Manufactured from durable Woodcrete, a mix of concrete and wood fibres, the box is extremely long-lasting and is guaranteed for 25 years. It comes with a stainless steel bracket, screws, universal wall plugs, locking screw and installation instructions. 

The box should be installed at a height of at least 6 - 8 metres and distance between boxes should be a minimum of 400m. To encourage use by kestrels, it is recommended to place a mixture of moist, coarse sawdust, wood shavings and washed sand in the bottom of the box.
