About this product

It is increasingly difficult for Swallows and House Martins to find suitable nest-building mud and when they do find it, it is often poor quality. In addition, the walls of buildings are nowadays often very smooth so nests tend to fall down, sometimes with the nestlings inside. In many places, the vibration caused by heavy vehicles shakes the nests loose.

The Swallow Nest No. 10 consists of a woodcrete nesting bowl which is attached to a wooden panel of formaldehyde-free chipboard. The nest should be placed inside outbuildings such as sheds, barns or stables leaving a distance of at least 6cm between the top of the nest and the ceiling. You should ensure there is always access for the birds through an open window or sky-light. Swallows are sociable birds but multiple nests should not be placed at less than 1m intervals. Cleaning of the bowl is recommended, although not absolutely necessary. 

These Woodcrete nest boxes are famous for their durability - lasting for at least 20-25 years. Woodcrete is a blend of wood, concrete and clay which will not rot, leak, crack or warp. They are backed by leading ornithologists, nature conservation organisations, government agencies and forestry experts. Schwegler boxes have the highest occupation rates of all nest boxes and are carefully designed to mimic natural nest sites and provide a stable environment for chick rearing and winter roosting.
