A large proportion of Dutch kestrels breed in a nest box. There are several models in circulation that can all work just fine. This nesting box is made of exterior plywood and the roof is coated with bitumen.

  • Hang the nest box at least 4 meters high along the forest edge, in the forest, a park or (large) garden. This can be in a tree or on a pole but can also be fine on a (quiet) facade or in a mast.
  • Do not hang the nest box with the entrance opening facing southwest. In the nest box, add a small amount of nesting material (dry wood chips).
  • Since every location/tree is different, we provide the nest box with minimal means to hang it. Upon placement, it is possible to assess what additional resources are needed for stable and safe placement.

This hive can be cleaned after the breeding season (preferably in the winter months). Do not empty everything but leave a layer of (old) nesting material in the hive for the next breeding season.
