I bought the swift nest box rather than make one, a bit of a cop out I’m afraid. There are many out there available to buy all of a fairly similar design but I went for the one below, mainly because I liked the look.
The Box in installed on the back wall of the house, I would say around 5m from the ground. The location is not ideal but was chosen for ease of installation as I could install it from one of the bedroom windows.
I would have preferred to install it under the roof eaves of the house, which would have been further off the ground and provided more shelter. If the box is not used during 2020 I may try and reposition it during the winter.
A wireless video camera was added to the box, of the type shown below.
he wireless receiver box is located on the ground floor and the reception is a bit poor quality.
