Eco Barn Owl Nest Box
Eco Barn Owl Nest Box
The Eco Barn Owl Nest Box is constructed almost entirely out of recycled plastic with the exception of the wooden base. The recycled plastic means that this nest box is extremely robust, requires virtually no maintenance and has a long life expectancy. The wooden base, made from FSC certified chip-board, absorbs moisture from the nest and should be replaced every few years. The black and green colouration ensures the nest box blends into its surroundings. The curved roof integrates with the sides of the box and overlaps the back and the front of the box to ensure the inside of the box remains dry. The box is secured using a separate fixing bracket that can be fitted to a tree or wall, with screws or straps. Once the bracket is fixed in place the nest box simply hooks onto the bracket. Please note that Barn Owls are a Schedule 1 species and so an occupied box must only be disturbed or inspected by a licensed individual. Features: * Exercise platform for young owls. * Integrated side access hatch for cleaning or monitoring. * Internal camera bracket. * Entrance hole at correct height to prevent young owls getting out before they have reached maturity.   By clicking the Buy button you can purchase this book through the Natural History Book Shop and we will receive a small percentage towards our work.

No. 5 Schwegler Owl Box
No. 5 Schwegler Owl Box
Owl Boxes are often installed in parks and forests, not only to promote the diversity of species, but also as a means of controlling mouse populations. The No. 5 Owl Box is designed to mimic natural holes in trees in which the tawny owl will typically roost. This nest box is also suitable for stock doves and jackdaw. This box should be installed 4 - 6m above ground and birds can be encouraged to use the box if a thick layer of wood shavings or sawdust is spread over the recess in the floor. The front panel can easily be removed for inspection and cleaning purposes. The box is made from Schwegler wood-concrete; an exceedingly durable, rot-proof and breathable natural material designed to mimic the properties of natural nest sites and last 20 - 25 years. A replacement front panel is available separately if you break or lose the front panel of your nestbox.
