Swifts (Apus apus) are summer visitors to the UK. Each year they make the long journey from their wintering grounds in Africa to breed, before returning again in August. Swifts mate for life and breeding pairs will meet up each Spring at the same nest site. These nests are made high in the roof space under the eaves of old buildings. Many modern and refurbished buildings now have much more effective sealing of the eaves, meaning that nesting spaces are becoming more difficult to find.
The Eco-habitat for Swifts is designed to be incorporated into the brickwork of a new build or renovation. It will provide a suitable nesting site for a pair of swifts whilst being a discrete addition to your building. It should be sited high up in an external wall, as close to the eaves as possible.
Available in smooth red or smooth blue brick.
