Kestrel Box Placement
Kestrel Box Siting
For best results boxes should be sited 3-5 metres up fixed to the side of a tree or sitting in the junction of a branch. Kestrels like an open approach to their boxes, coming in low and preferring to be able to see the box from a distance. It is best to position the opening away from the prevailing wind.
Attach the back plate provided to the tree with the writing against the tree then hook the box onto the back plate and attach the box to the back plate.
