The Swift Block is designed to create nesting space for swifts that can be easily integrated into new builds or retrofitted in existing properties. The front of the Swift Block is designed to sit flush with the outside bricks of a build, with the entrance slightly protruding.
The Swift Block features an internal nesting bowl, a small entrance hole to deter larger birds and predators, full instructions cast into the surface for easy fitting, and a stylish entrance feature.
Made from cast concrete, meaning that it is long lasting and will not rot or deteriorate like a traditional wooden nest box. The cast concrete is made using up to 75% waste materials from the Cornish China Clay industry and is standard UK breezeblock size.
The Swift Block should be positioned at least 5m from ground level avoiding south facing walls, on the side of a building that gets shade during the day, or under an overhang or eaves. It should be mounted away from windows and vents and predator access. Swift Blocks should also be placed in a spot with clear adjacent access, allowing high speed, direct flight entry.
N.b The Swift Block does include a plate to close off the back of the box.
