The Kestrel takes it's prey almost exclusively from the ground. Mice especially field mice make up 80-90% of it's food because of this farmers and foresters welcome it.

This nest box is made of WoodcretePLUS, which has proved to be highly effective and weather-resistant. To encourage the birds to adopt the box a mixture of coarse sawdust, wood shavings and washed sand should be moistened and placed inside. Site 6 to 8 metres from the ground.

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.

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.)
