New Swift boxes for the Clock Tower
Our resident Swift champion, Chris Lowe, has refurbished the Swift nesting boxes in the Clock Tower, and with the help of Bryan Warren has re-installed them, along with the CD player that, set on a timer, plays out Swift calls to attract the Swifts into the boxes.
As Chris says, “Two suites of Swift nest-boxes boxes were put in the Clocktower some time ago but never properly installed (a long story). I removed these 3 weeks ago to replace rusty hinges with stainless steel ones. (The site is exposed to salt-laden winds). These have now been re-installed and are ready to go!”
