SCHWEGLER 33

The Kestrel is a Bird of Prey that seeks its food on the ground. Farmers and foresters welcome it because of its preference

for Field Mice which, together with other types of mice, account for 80 or even 90 per cent of its diet. Kestrels

tend to remain in the same area. This nesting aid, which has been used to great effect for decades, can be easily and

flexibly attached to almost any surface using the strap supplied (e.g. with screw-in hooks, cable ties, clamps etc.)

Material: The Nest Box is made of SCHWEGLER wood-concrete, which has proved to be highly effective and

weather-resistant.

Bedding: To encourage the Birds to adopt the box a mixture of coarse sawdust, wood shavings and washed sand

should be moistened and placed inside.

Height above ground: Best 6 to 8 m (minimum installation height: 2.5 to 3 m).

Siting: On solitary trees, quiet places on the edge of woodlands, barns in open countryside, electricity masts, silos,

wind generators, etc. The following sites are recommended in urban areas: large buildings, high walls, chimneys,

industrial buildings, churches, etc. In the absence of trees the boxes can be installed on high poles to assist the

Birds in their hunt for mice.

Entrance hole: Facing south-east or away from the prevailing wind. Alternatively

under rafters, in recesses on historic buildings, in gaps in masonry, etc.

External dimensions: W 33 x H 36 x D 45 cm.

Interior of nesting chamber: W 30 x H 34 x D 30 cm.

Width of entrance: 17 x 24 cm.

Weight: approx. 13 kg.

Order No. 00 251/8

» NEST BOX No. 28 FOR KESTRELS Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete

Jackdaws are another endangered species. They live in colonies, and therefore several Nest Boxes should be

installed in the same area or on a building.

The front panel, containing the entrance hole, can be removed for cleaning and inspection. The screws used for

attachment have been designed to withstand the Jackdaw's tendency to "play" with things.

Material: Long-lasting SCHWEGLER wood-concrete

Siting: Residential buildings, external walls, churches, silos, industrial buildings, etc.

Height above ground: min. 6 - 8 m.

Width of entrance hole: l 8 cm.

Density: Ideally the nest boxes should be spaced approximately 1 to 2 m apart.

External dimensions: W 33 x H 36 x D 30 cm.

Interior of nesting chamber: W 30 x H 34 x D 30 cm.

Weight: approx. 13.5 kg.

Barn Owls prefer cultivated areas and always live and breed in proximity to humans.

Not only Kestrels but Barn Owls, too, are important natural predators of Field Mice, Water Voles and Rats.

Material: Water-resistant chipboard made without the use of formaldehyde.

Bedding: Encourage Birds to use the box by forming a base with tree bark and coarse wood shavings.

Siting: The box should not be placed completely in the open but attached to the inside walls of buildings, using

screws and plugs. There is a large flap at the rear for inspection and cleaning purposes. It is important to keep an

access hole through the external wall clear in front of the entrance to the box. Ideal for all kinds of buildings such as

barns, industrial buildings, church towers, etc.

Occupants: Primarily Barn Owl or Kestrel.

Height above ground: At least 6 to 8 m (entrance level above ground).
