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 box has an aperture for inspection and cleaning purposes.
The box is made of rings of wood-concrete surrounded by wood batons and roofing felt.
Tube shaped box
Flexible metal fixing strips for mounting
