A tempting home for swifts?

This eyecatching swift in University Parks in Oxford is a fine sculpture, but it also provides bespoke nest boxes to tempt swifts to nest here. The swift tower was created as part of the RSPB’s two-year Swift City Project which has increased awareness of our endangered swift population, encouraged better swift recording and also ensured that more swift nest boxes are installed around the city. TOE was delighted to provide a grant towards the swift tower with funds from Grundon Waste Management. We do hope that swifts will like it too!
