This swift nest box is ideal for using in new buildings or renovations in the hard to access sites that Swifts prefer such as under the eaves. Like all WoodStone® products the nest box offers the occupants protection from predators and insulation from extremes of temperature.
This model is designed to be incorporated into the wall and then covered with building materials that form the building`s outer facade.
An entrance hole of at least 30mm tall and 60mm wide should be left for swifts. By leaving a slightly larger entrance space of around 35mm you will encourage other species such as house sparrows to occupy the nest. Leaving most of the entrance exposed and siting the box below five metres will encourage robins, wagtails and black redstarts to occupy the nest box.
