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.

Little Owl Nesting Box Features: 

  • Handmade From Solid FSC Certified Timber
  • Lightweight But Durable
  • Deep Dark Box With Small Tunnel Entrance
  • Slow Seasoned Timber

Little Owl Nesting Box Dimensions:

  • Height: 46.5cm (1ft 6ins)
  • Width: 53.5cm (1ft 9ins)
  • Depth: 41cm (1ft 4ins)
  • Weight: 4.85kg (10lbs 11oz)

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.

Unloading Of Your Delivery
Due to the nature of this product, delivery will be made to the front of the property to the nearest location as a "curb-side delivery" service. Our drivers will not carry these items inside your home or back garden. When the item is delivered on a pallet, the pallet and packaging are non-returnable and the goods can only be manoeuvred on a flat and level surface (i.e. not a gravel driveway) by a pallet truck. On some occasions, the driver will split the package to assist with the manoeuvring of the item. Once you are happy, we will ask you to check the condition of the goods and sign for the delivery.

Once the delivery has been unloaded from off the driver's van, the customer has 10 minutes in order to unwrap and check the delivery contents for any damages before signing for and accepting a successful delivery. Any damages should be reported to the driver within this time frame, as once the driver has left, any claims for damages may not be successful.
