Barn owls are suffering - they have fewer places to nest than ever before and existing nests never last any decent length of time to enable them to continually return. This new and innovative ECO Barn Owl Nest box, however, fixes that problem. Made with a design that has been based on the existing Barn owl Nest box in Collaboration with the Barn Owl trust - but the material is all recycled plastic. This gives the box incredible strength and also a long lasting life, perfect for Barn owls to return to as often as they like.
The only element of this nest box which is wooden, is the floor. It had to be retained as wood to ensure it can dry naturally and not hold water. It requires no maintenance at all and can be installed into a tree or barn wall from the box. The Barn Owl box never requires any painting and only annual cleaning which a guide to do so is included in the box.
It is important that Barn Owls which are nesting feel safe and secure - this nest box ticks those boxes and provides a warm safe environment for them to nest and roost.
The Nest box is tastefully coloured in black and green that allows it to blend in to most environments nicely. Not only will the owls be safe and able to breed, you have the lovely pleasure of being able to see them teach their young and potentially watch them fledge the nest as they try to fly which is a real treat for any child or adult.
