A change of box

This pole box was originally erected in October 2006 and after six years of exposure I decided to replace it as it was beginning to show signs of wear and tear.

In order to encourage any youngsters to remain in the nest site until they are capable of flying I have chosen to put up a deeper A-Frame in its place; this should prevent any inquisitive owlets from falling out of the box as they cannot access the exit until they are that much older.
