Nesting Box - For Swifts
Swifts pair for life, meeting up each spring at the same nest site. This means your residents will return to your box each year for the rest of their life.
Our swift boxes are built to RSPB specs and are best mounted under the gables or eaves of your house/outbuilding as long as it is 4.5m (15ft) off the ground.
There have been exciting developments in encouraging swifts to find and occupy nest spaces. Simply playing swift call sounds from a small nearby speaker sufficiently loud for the birds to hear as they fly overhead when they arrive in May can be very successful. You can find many swift calls on YouTube here, simply play them on loop.
