against Martens. Supplied with clamping band and

Aluminium Nails for fixing onto horizontal branches.

VV sectional view: Type No. 21 VV Little Owl pellets

1. Quadrant shape for enlarged floor space

2. The design of the two sides of the roof provides an air gap running along the entire ridge which is very important for providing ventilation.

3. One side of the roof can be removed to provide easy access for inspection and cleaning.

4. A telescopic, galvanized steel rod is ideal for level mounting on trees which, because of their size or lack of horizontal branches (e.g., a pear tree), would

normally be unsuitable for Little Owl Boxes.

5. Martens are repelled by aromatic repellent.

This model has five special features:

» Little Owl Box No. 20B with protection against Martens and forced ventilation

2. Forced ventilation: The unique, forced ventilation system which is built

into the end of the box enables stale air to be replaced without causing a

draught (Fig. 2). This system also ensures that no light can enter the box. The

amount of droppings and the resulting moisture, which can otherwise adversely

affect the successful survival of the brood, is substantially reduced.

ADVANTAGES:

1. Protection against Martens:

Martens are prevented from

entering this box by the two offset

entrance holes.

3. Cleaning and inspection:

The entrance section can be

completely removed, making it

easier to clean and inspect the box

from the front.
