Siting & positioning:
On solitary trees, quiet places on the edge of woodlands, barns in open countryside, electricity masts, silos, wind generators, etc. The following sites are recommended in urban areas: large buildings, high walls, chimneys, industrial buildings, churches, etc. In the absence of trees the boxes can be installed on high poles to assist the birds in their hunt for mice. Minimum height: 2.5 to 3 m.
Entrance hole should face south-east or away from the prevailing wind. Alternatively under rafters, in recesses on historic buildings, in gaps in masonry, etc.
To encourage the birds to adopt the box a mixture of coarse sawdust, wood shavings and washed sand should be moistened and placed inside.
