Bank swallows are not known as nest box dwellers. However, with these nesting boxes it is possible to offer this species an artificial nesting opportunity. The nest boxes can be placed in a home-made art wall or in the specially made art wall OW OZ 01.

The nest boxes are applied in the immediate vicinity of water or at large (construction) sites where excavation work takes place and swallows try to nest in the large piles of sand. The installation of an artificial wall in this situation provides bank swallows with a safe place to nest without disturbance.

Placement depends on the chosen application.

  • When used in our wall OW OZ 01, place the nesting boxes with the entrance opening on the designated platforms against the front wall.
  • Here, make sure that the entrance opening is horizontal and that the opening is off center at the bottom. The tunnel then slopes slightly upward into the nest area.

The nest box can be cleaned once a year at the end of the season (starting in October). Remove the old nest by opening the door at the back of the nest box.
