Placing Your Box:

1. Optimal Height: Hang the Barn Owl Box Duplex at a height of 3 to 5 meters (10 to 16 feet) from the ground, providing Barn Owls with a suitable height for flight and easy access to the box. They prefer nesting sites that are as high up as possible.

2. Sheltered Location: Position the box in a sheltered spot, ideally near open fields, meadows, or areas with low vegetation where Barn Owls prefer to hunt. Ensure the box is placed away from high human traffic areas to minimise disturbance.

3. Orientation: Face the entrance of the box away from prevailing winds, typically towards the east or southeast, to provide protection from strong winds and harsh weather conditions. This helps maintain a comfortable temperature inside the box.

4. Clear Flight Path: Ensure there are no obstacles, such as wires or tree branches, obstructing the flight path to the box. Barn Owls require a clear approach and departure route for easy access.

5. Nearby Hunting Ground: Consider the proximity of suitable hunting grounds for Barn Owls, such as open fields or grasslands with populations of small mammals. Providing easy access to food sources enhances the attractiveness of the nesting site.

By providing a safe and suitable nesting space, you actively contribute to the conservation of Barn Owls and promote a thriving ecosystem.
