This built-in nesting box is suitable to compensate for swifts’ nest sites in the facade. Due to the maximum depth dimension of 160 mm, it also fits into existing construction, allowing it to be used in renovations or post-insulation.

The height of this built-in brick fits perfectly into 3-layer waal format and the box can be built in either with the entrance opening to the left or right. House sparrows also like to use this built-in nest box. For discovery of the nest box by swifts, this is beneficial. If the swift wants to take over the nest box from the house sparrow, the sparrows will be thrown out without mercy.

This built-in nest box is made of FSC wood concrete with a waterproof glued plywood back wall.

  • Build the built-in nest box horizontally with the front side flush with the facade. Preferably several together with a minimum horizontal and vertical spacing of 50 cm.
  • Where possible, build built-in cabinets high up and under the eaves. If that is not possible then build in at least 4 meters high in the facade.
  • Do not build in cabinets directly over doors or windows. Facades between north and east are preferred. A different wind direction is also possible (for example, directly under the roof overhang). Do not build the stays where there is full sun all day and not on southwest facades because of rain intrusion.
  • Do not add nesting material.

This built-in nest box does not require cleaning. Swifts themselves will work out excess nesting material (for example, if a house sparrow has been in it).
