Swifts are currently in decline with a drop of 51% between 1995 & 2015 this currently puts them on the amber list for endangered birds. Many researchers think this is partly due to a reduction of safe places for them nest on their return the UK. Modern housing, renovation of old barns and building and our tendency to seal gaps in the eaves mean they are finding fewer suitable places to rear their young. Swifts are amazing birds that like to nest high up, so ideally you'll need to place the box directly under the eaves giving them a safe place to nest for years to come.
