Manthorpe GSWB Swift Brick Nest Box For Enabling Nesting Swifts To Nest In Houses

The Manthorpe GSWB Swift Brick has been developed to provide a safe, spacious and habitable area to allow swifts to nest within the well built construction of modern houses.

Modern building practices have greatly improved the quality of new homes in the UK, however not to the benefit of everyone. Bird species such as swifts have occupied cracks and crevices in our buildings for thousands of years, but the improved standard and style of modern construction has put their survival in our towns and cities at risk.

Manthorpe's nest bricks have been developed in conjunction with major house builders and conservation experts to provide a safe, spacious and habitable area to allow swifts to nest within the construction of modern houses.

As modern building practices have greatly improved the quality of new homes in the UK, some have actually suffered from the advances in building regulation. Bird species such as swifts have occupied the cracks and crevices in our buildings for thousands of years, but the improved standard and style of modern construction has put their survival in our towns and cities at risk.

These popular birds come to the UK for three months during the summer to raise their young and can be seen on warm evenings giving spectacular displays.

They eat large quantities of insect pests and spiders - making them popular with many people!

Common Swifts prefer to nest in small groups but the population has been dwindling for many years as suitable nest sites have become scarcer.

The Manthorpe GSWB Swift Brick has been developed in conjunction with major house builders and conservation experts to provide a safe, spacious and habitable area to allow swifts to nest within the well built construction of modern houses.
