Woodstone® Build-in Swift Box (Hidden)
This nest box as the name suggests it suitable for the Swift. Swifts see our buildings as substitute "rockeries" where they would breed in a natural habitat.
The population of these birds has declined since the 1970s and all three species are now on the Amber List of Birds of Conservation Concern. Property maintenance and renovation often denies access to these birds, so providing a specially designed nest box is a practical way of helping the species and may be a condition of planning consent.
House sparrows or starlings are also known to use Swift boxes as nesting sites.
This nest box is made of the durable material WoodStone®, a mixture of wood fibre and concrete. The nest box is completely bricked in. At the front the nest box is finished with brick slips, all of them have to be created a 6 cm wide and 3 cm high entrance aperture.
Swifts use little nest material and do not make dirty marks on the façade.
