The tawny owl (Strix aluco) is a small, nocturnal owl which lives and breeds throughout England, Wales and Scotland. Naturally a woodland bird, tawny owls are becoming common in any towns and cities that have plenty of trees. Established breeding pairs will often remain in the same territory for all of their lives and in areas where natural nesting sites are rare, they will use man-made boxes, which also offer a high degree of protection for young.

The Tawny Owl Nest Box is made from plywood and should be mounted to the underside of a branch at an angle of 45° or less to the vertical (see image). It is recommended that ratchet straps or polypropylene rope (not included) are used to secure the box as these will cause minimal damage to the tree. In populated areas the box should be sited at a minimum of 3.7m from the ground. In quieter or more remote locations, it may be placed at a height of 3m. Always ensure that the entrance of the box is facing away from the prevailing wind.
