Triple Cavity Swift box 17A
The Schwegler Swift Box No. 17A is made from a special mixture of compressed plant fibres and concrete which enables it to provide good insulation and an extremely long life. This is an extended version of the No. 17 Standard Swift Box and can accommodate three pairs of swifts in parallel, enabling the rapid formation of swift colonies. The Swift box is supplied in a natural grey colour but can be painted to match the background using an air-permeable paint.
This box should be installed at least six to seven metres above ground level, ensuring that there is unobstructed access for swifts entering and leaving. If possible, boxes should be sited under the shelter of eaves or overhanging roofs. These triple cavity swift boxes can also be installed on steep rock faces. The swift box entrance hole can be opened by rotating the circular plate by 90° and removing it. Cleaning can easily be carried out although this is not essential where boxes are regularly occupied by swifts
