The Tawny Owl Nest Box is a handmade nesting box that provides tawny owls with a suitable cavity for nesting. Crafted in our Gloucestershire workshop, this purpose-built box offers an effective nesting solution for these familiar "too-whit too-whoo" owls in areas like large gardens, secondary forests, and conifer plantations where natural hollows are scarce.

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

As territorial birds, only one pair of Tawny Owls will occupy a given woodland territory and nest site. They will take up nest boxes, especially when seeking new nesting locations, and may reuse the same box year after 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 should be mounted high on a mature tree, between 3.5 and 5 meters, with a clear flight path to the entrance. This allows the fledglings to use nearby branches to reach the higher parts of the tree canopy when they emerge, which is why mounting the box on an isolated pole is unsuitable.

Ideally, the nesting box should face east, northeast, or southeast to provide ample prey for the owls. Tawny Owls have a diverse diet including mice, voles, rats, insects, invertebrates, amphibians and birds. Locating the box near fruiting or nut-bearing trees that support these prey species would put vital food sources close to the nest and mark an optimal spot.

Monitoring and Inspection

Tawny owls are early breeding birds, and some individuals may lay eggs as early as January. You may inspect the box in May, but You should take care in opening the inspection hatch as tawny owls can be aggressive if young are present or nearby.
