Siting & Positioning:
On almost all kinds of trees except cherry, because the cherry harvest coincides with the time when the young are still at the nest site. If possible the little owl box should be mounted on a horizontal branch, to which it is attached using the four galvanised, perforated metal strips and our special aluminium nails. The boxes can also be attached in the tops of pollarded trees. The access for the birds should always face the trunk.
Cleaning and Inspection:
The access section can be completely removed, making it easier to clean and inspect the box from the front.
Wooden batons mounted on wood-concrete rings, and covered with specially sanded roofing felt. Robust, removable entrance section, made of water-resistant wood laminate.
