Swallows like to nest high up in areas where there are dark ledges, they need to stay warm in winter and cool in summer. These Swallow nest cups make good substitutes for the real thing where nesting is to be encouraged.Swallow nests should be positioned inside sheds, stables and barns; ensure there is always access through a window or small opening.
Dry spring weather is a disaster for these migrants who need soft mud to make their nests. Swallows will readily adopt these durable boxes that closely resemble the nests they build themselves. Although Swallows are social birds, the nests should not be placed directly adjacent to one another but at intervals of approximately 1m.
