Are you fascinated by the aerial acrobatics of swifts and eager to support their conservation? Don’t miss out on our Swift Nest Box Making Workshop, where you can learn how to create a stylish home for these remarkable birds!

Swifts are incredible creatures that spend most of their lives in the air, only touching down to nest and raise their young. However, their natural nesting sites, such as gaps in buildings, are declining due to modern construction practices. By providing nest boxes, we can help ensure that swifts have safe places to raise their families.

What to expect

  • Hands-on demonstration on how to build and install swift nest boxes.
  • Customize your nest boxes with decorative touches and environmentally-friendly materials.
  • Tips and advice on where to install your nest boxes for maximum effectiveness.

Spaces are limited, so be sure to reserve your spot today by booking a place below. 1 booking = 1 nest box to take home.

Together, let’s create safe havens for swifts and ensure that these magnificent birds continue to grace our skies for generations to come.
