Swift Boxes

Swifts come to the UK for each summer from Central and Southern Africa. Despite legal
protection their numbers are declining. Since Roman times they have been at home in
traditional man-made buildings. However they find it increasingly difficult to find nest
sites in modern or refurbished buildings due to the effective sealing of the eaves.

  • The Forticrete Swift Box has been developed to be used in new build construction or renovation work where there is a requirement to provide a habitat for birds.
  • The box is made of cast stone but is hollow in order to provide a haven for birds to nest in.
  • The Swift Box illustrated is available from Forticrete's 'Stone in Stock' range without the swift motif, although bespoke boxes can be designed and made for any application.
  • Swift motif and twin holes available as optional extra
