RSPB Swift nest box
- Save £2 when you buy two promotional Nest boxes!
Swift numbers have declined steadily in recent decades; they are on the UK Red List of birds of highest conservation concern, and they need our help. This nest box has been designed in conjunction with Action for Swifts – a voluntary organisation working solely for the conservation of Swifts.Read full information
The RSPB Swift nest box fits directly beneath even the narrowest of eaves, and its sloping roof improves durability and makes it hard for predators to gain purchase.
Its entry hole measures 28 x 65mm and is designed to keep starlings out, while its internal nest cup will encourage any swift inspecting the box to take up residence. Swifts prefer to occupy nest boxes that contain a nest cup, compared to those without.
- Handcrafted in the UK, this swift nest box is made from FSC® certified timber.
- Overall measurements are 44cm wide, 21.7cm tall (at the back), 12cm tall (at the front) and 20.2cm deep at the deepest point.
- Weight is approximately 3.5kg.
