The videos you will see here have been made by Mark who is one of the Swift Group members. What goes on inside a swift nest can only be seen with the aid of a mini CCTV camera. The videos showing the nest boxes were made with the video setting of a digital camera. The birds that are screaming include some of the nesting birds. The birds that are knocking against the nest boxes are 'bangers' looking for a nest site. There is a swift attraction CD playing. This attracts non breeding swifts and lets them know nest boxes are available.
They have been divided in to two parts
