Watch and save barn owls

Give an owl a home and enjoy watching them too. With our ever-changing environment, there is a desperate need to have suitable nesting sites for barn owls. Now you are able to help create a sanctuary for your barn owl as well as allow you to enjoy them too with a external barn owl box and camera system.

Barn-owl

The box
The design of the box was a slightly adapted version of the official Barn Owl Trust design. The Barn Owl Trust are the world authorities on barn owls and their conservation. We were pleased to be allowed to use the design for our boxes. They have developed a nest box design that increases the chances of attracting barn owls and encouraging them to raise their brood. The design includes a special tray that can help owlets climb up the tree, land on the roof and jump back into the box if they fall out.

The boxes are well constructed and are designed to be placed in trees in all weathers.

They are made using the following:
  • Pressure treated FSC 12mm plywood
  • Stainless steel screws
  • Glued for extra rigidity
  • Felted roof with 25 year polymer roofing felt
  • Sealed plywood edges and joints

The features of the box are:

  • Owl attractive and friendly size and shape
  • Owlet safety tray
  • Hinged service hatch
  • Mounting bar, hooks and bolts for easy installation
  • Waterproof joints and overhanging roof to keep box dry
  • Ventilation holes in base
  • Camera ready modification with cable trunking

Outdoor owl box install

Installing
Installing a owl box may require a couple of people. The box is solid and quite heavy so you will probably need ladders, ropes etc. All you have to do is choose a good nesting site, near an owl friendly feeding ground, on a large tree with exposed trunk and rough bark. Owls need to be able to fly in and out the box and owlets need a rough bark trunk in order to climb up. The Barn Owl Trust has a great article on this – Click here lift the box into the tree by using ropes on the hooks provided. Attach it to the tree either by mounting bracket, bolts, straps. Once installed, just leave it up ready for the owls.

The full kit includes:

  • An easy fit colour camera with a built in microphone and night vision.
  • A stainless steel alloy camera fixing bolt with thumbscrew
  • 20 meter high quality, black connecting cable that allows you to connect you nest box straight to your TV, VCR or DVD recorder.
  • A UK mains power adaptor
  • Easy to understand setup instructions for your nest box camera kit.
  • A focus test pattern
  • …and even a SCART plug to connect it to your TV!

  • Removable CMOS colour IR camera, with microphone and phono connectors
  • 420 line, adjustable focus swivel and tilt camera, pre-adjusted for nest box use

The cable supplied with this kit is a high quality product and was chosen for it's superior performance (...clean sound and vision!) Not only does the cable carry the video and audio signals, it also delivers the power from your house to your camera, no need to for seperate DC cable!

It's easy to setup
Just screw or bolt the camera to the wall or roof of stand (optional extra) and attach the cable. Plug the other end of the cable into the power adaptor and the SCART or AV socket on your TV.

 

It's a good idea to set up the camera in your box near the TV first as this will make it easier to focus. The camera can focus from down to within a couple of centimetres to infinity (further away), depending on your needs.

 

Once setup, you will be able to detach and move the camera around where needed. As the camera will be in the dark owl box, it will permanently be in black and white/IR mode.
