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.
1. Protection against Martens:
Martens are prevented from
entering this box by the two offset
3. Cleaning and inspection:
The entrance section can be
completely removed, making it
easier to clean and inspect the box
from the front.
