Great but....

Box arrived this morning. It is very sturdy and well made. Only a small problem with the perch that is included. It is not as pictured in product photo. The perch is rounded on one end, no instructions on which way it goes on and no screws to attach the perch to the box. Would also have been helpful to include nails or screws for mounting the box to the tree so you would what is the best size. Craftsmenship is fantastic but falls short on instructions and hardware.

RSPB response - Thank you for your review, we’re glad that you like the craftsmanship and how sturdy and well made the boxes are. There is no mention of the which way round to mount the perch in the instructions because it can go on either way, sticking out to the left or right depending on your preference when putting the box up. There are pre-drilled holes in the perch so just lay the perch in place on the front of the box, and use the two screws that are supplied in a small bag inside the box to secure it. We have asked our supplier to tape the screws to the perch itself in future, rather than put them in the box to make sure that they are easy to find and don’t go missing again. We don’t supply screws for mounting the box because each location and therefore method of installation will be very different for these boxes, and whatever we supplied may well be unsuitable in a lot of cases. Thank you again for the feedback and good luck with finding some tenants for your new box. By Boudicea, on 24 Jan 2013

Product information

Tawny owls are content to nest in smaller cavities than barn owls and the design of this nest box reflects this. Made of FSC timber, this beautifully designed nest box comes with a cleaning hatch and a long removable perch.

For information about how to handle tawny owls while nesting, please read the information on the 'advice' tab before purchasing this nestbox.

There are many factors to consider when choosing a bird of prey nestbox. Please read our advice document carefully before purchasing.

Instructions for installing an RSPB Tawny owl box

Care must be taken when siting this nest box as tawny owls can be aggressive when they or their young are approached. It's best to leave them alone while they're nesting.
