Thinking Of Installing a ‘Barn Owl’ Nesting Box?

We now use a pre-built nest box, made from a product called ‘Stokboard’, which is recycled plastic.

The advantage of this box is that it outlives the life of plywood boxes and tests prove that it is condensation-free, waterproof, and resistant to hot weather conditions.

Ultimately purchasing these boxes will save the trust much-needed funds, by lasting longer and saving valuable construction time.

Rest assured that this new ECO-friendly material being used to make external Barn Owl boxes will make no difference to the Owls who search for places to nest and roost.

A site survey should be undertaken by someone with the necessary experience, who can give advice.  We will happily do this for you, free of charge.

The installation of pole nest boxes, in particular, is difficult and dangerous and should not be attempted without proper planning and assistance.

In all cases, we are more than happy to give guidance & advice, and also make Wirral peninsula site survey visits, which are free of charge.

Wirral Barn Owl Trust welcomes suggestions for the siting of Barn Owl nest boxes on the Wirral Peninsula.
Barn Owl nest boxes come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be adapted where required, but basically consist of three types.
&nbsp
A-frame box: Usually fitted to a single hedgerow tree but can also be used on the outside of a suitable building.
&nbsp
Interior box: Originally these were adapted from a tea chest but this design has improved features.
&nbsp
Pole box: Where no suitable tree or building can be found in an area where there is suitable habitat, a nest box can be installed on a recycled telegraph pole. These boxes are relatively expensive and are difficult to install and maintain so we use them as a last resort.
