Handcrafted in Gloucestershire, the Tawny Owl Nest Box offers tawny owls a proper nesting site, providing the cavity they need but often lack in large gardens, secondary forests, and conifer plantations. With this purpose-built box, the familiar "too-whit too-whoo" owls can find an effective nesting solution.

Handmade in the UK from FSC Certified wood, this nest box is built to last.  

Tawnies are territorial birds; only one pair will occupy a woodland territory and nest site. Tawny Owls will take up this box for nesting, especially when looking for new nest sites, and may reuse the box every year.

  • Handmade from solid FSC-certified timber
  • Slow-seasoned timber negates the need for chemicals, stains or artificial preservatives.
  • Lightweight but durable
  • Recycled plastic upper and lower hanging/fixing plates
  • Integral perch
  • Large inspection door with bolt
  • Fitted with a camera clip (camera not included)

Siting

The Tawny Owl box needs to be mounted 3.5 to 5 meters high up on a mature tree with an unobstructed flight path to the entrance. This allows the fledglings to reach nearby branches and climb to the upper parts of the tree canopy once they emerge. Mounting the box on an isolated pole would not provide suitable access.

The nesting box should ideally face east, northeast, or southeast to ensure ample prey, as Tawny Owls eat a diverse range of prey like mice, voles, rats, insects, invertebrates, amphibians, and birds. Nearby fruiting or nut-bearing trees that support these prey species would provide vital food sources close to the nest, indicating an optimal location.

Monitoring and Inspection

Tawny owls breed early, with some individuals laying eggs as early as January. You can inspect the nest box in May, but take care when opening the hatch. Tawny owls will aggressively defend their young if they are present in or near the box.
