Swifts spend as little as three months breeding in the UK each summer before returning to Africa. They have traditionally bred in the eaves and gables of buildings but these sites are becoming scarce as, increasingly in modern and renovated buildings, swifts are excluded. Swifts have declined in the UK by as much as a third in the past twenty years, one of the apparent causes being the loss of nesting sites. You can help these increasingly threatened birds by putting up our swift nest box to provide a safe comfortable nest site.
Our nest boxes are easy to fit. Simply secure them externally to the building in a quiet spot ideally high up (we suggest at least 5m high) beneath the eaves. It’s important that there is a substantial clear drop beneath the front of the box so the swifts have an uninterrupted flight path.
The box is constructed from precision cut FSC certified external grade European birch plywood and has been treated with environmentally friendly preservative which is kind to the birds but ensures a long lasting dry comfortable nest box. The Swift Nest Box features a single nesting compartment with oval entrance hole and a hinged lid for access.
