Swift Nest Chambers in Church Towers

The Plumpton Wildlife & Habitat Group installed nest chambers into Plumpton's All Saints Church tower in the Spring of 2010. Their website is www.plumptonwildlifegroup.yolasite.com where there is more information and excellent pictures for any group hoping to build similar boxes to encourage Swifts to their local church.

Of course these breeding chambers can only be successful if there are other Swifts flying nearby during the summer months, and a CD of calling birds is played from the church tower. There are several difficulties with fixing up CD units and anyone with problems please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
