North Wales Wildlife Trust Swift Boxes

We were very luck in 2017 to have three swift boxes fitted on the house by the North Wales Wildlife Trust. Read more about the project at
There were fly by’s in late 2017 but no swifts have come to nest with us yet!

Update: A pair of swifts flew by 29 April 2020. One fly by twice and slapped the box. The I watched it disappeared inside the box where is made happy sounds. Not seen them since but fingers crossed they are off feeding and preparing for nesting.

  1. We live in and among old barns. For the last couple of years there have been fewer & fewer swallows & more jackdaws – who best in the old barns. We have been thinking about getting nests for them next year. So pleased to hear that yours are getting used now Jo.
