Commercial Nest Boxes for Swifts

Below are some commercially available nest boxes for swifts. By far the best are those made by the German company Schwegler. They are made from woodcrete which is a mixture of cement, sawdust and ?clay. Due to the poor / they are currently quite expensive. One is not recommended. This is the Schwegler no. 16 which has an entrance too big and allows starlings to nest inside. Male starlings are very territorial and will chase swifts away for many weeks. The UK supplier for Schwegler nest boxes is Jacobi Jayne http://www.jacobijayne.co.uk/nest-boxes-by-species/swift/
