The Little Owl Nesting Box will be really helpful in conserving this species, that was introduced into the UK during the 19th century, as their numbers are rapidly declining.
There is a camera clip so that you can closely observe what is happening in the deep nest that is handmade from screwed and jointed FSC timber.
Designed with a small tunnel entrance that denies access to larger owls, another feature is the high entry point so that fledglings are contained within the box for as long as possible.
Recycled plastic is used for the hanging and fixing plates and the wood is slow seasoned to ensure durability without the use of chemical preservatives.

Siting: As farmland birds, the Little Owl has been known to utilise rabbit burrows and natural holes in trees for their nesting sites. We would recommend placing the box between the ground and no more than 2.5m high preferably out of reach of domestic cats who may pose as a threat to them. Alternatively, they can be placed on a woodland tree. The box should face East/ North East or South East. Small mammals are a huge part of the Little Owls diet therefore having a vast amount of prey close to the nesting box is vital.
Monitoring: The Little Owls are early breeding birds therefore we would recommend cleaning the box from September to January. They are known for being messy so we would recommend using an environmentally friendly cleaning product e.g. Wildkleen for disinfecting the box.
