This Cavity Panel is ideal as a facing for cavities and niches in walls to provide breeding spaces for Swifts. This

board enables new nesting places to be created individually and very quickly (even at a later stage or when construction work has been completed). This board can also be easily and successfully

installed when older buildings

are being renovated, or on ancient walls and buildings.

The built-in rosette, forming the entrance, is one of its special features. The entire entrance can be rotated by 90° to

release it, and the rosette can then be removed. This makes monitoring and cleaning much easier. If required we can

supply the board without the removable rosette, and with the longitudinal aperture measuring 70 x 30 mm.

To encourage Birds to occupy this nesting box and for improved results we recommend using the "Nest Mould for

Swifts" (Order No. 00 619/6, see below).

Siting: Easily attached to rafters, cavities or recesses in walls, using screws and wall plugs (not provided) for the

four drill holes.

Cleaning and inspection: The entrance hole insert is removable by turning it 90°.

Material: Plant fibre (100 % asbestos free) panel

and wood-concrete insert.

Dimensions: 20 x 20 cm x panel thickness 6 mm.

Thickness of entrance hole insert 3 cm.

Weight: approx. 0.6 kg.

Swift Nest No. 18

Cavity Panel for Swifts

Nest Mould for Swifts

» SWIFT NEST No. 18 Rögelein design

This attractively styled Swift Nest is readily accepted by the Birds and has proved highly effective when installed

under eaves. It can be attached by screws to walls or in an overhead position, e.g. on ceilings. We recommend

painting the angled board with exterior wall paint but to leave the bowl as supplied in order to improve thermal

insulation and provide a better grip for the Birds. The angled board makes it much easier to install, even on difficult

sites, because any sawing, drilling or screwing can easily be carried out.

Material: Air-permeable SCHWEGLER wood-concrete with long-lasting, formaldehyde-free chipboard frame,

suitable for painting.

Siting and Positioning: As No. 17 (see page 40). Similar to all our other Swift boxes but, since the chipboard

panel is moisture-resistant but not rainproof, it should always be placed under overhanging eaves or in some other

sheltered site.

Cleaning: The entire nest can be removed from the frame.

When it is replaced the nest is locked back into position using

the angled nails.

Int. dimensions: approx. height 14 x width 34 x depth 15 cm.

Ext. dimensions: height 19 x width 50 x depth 22 cm.

Weight: approx. 4.5 kg.

The shape of this recess prevents the eggs from rolling around and can therefore improve the survival prospects of

the young Birds. It is commonly used with great success in many natural and artificial nesting places and is specifically recommended by experts. It

is also frequently used in scientific ringing projects. It can provide the basis for a

nest in skylights and roof spaces, gaps between rafters, in church towers and embrasures accessible to Swifts, in

dark areas where there are no nearby entrance holes. Ideal for use inside SCHWEGLER

Swift Boxes 1MF, no. 14, no. 15 and no.16, no. 16S. Does not fit in Type no. 17 boxes.

Material: SCHWEGLER wood-concrete.

External dimensions: H 3.5 x W 13.5 x D 20 cm. Diameter of nest shape: 9.5 cm.

Weight: approx. 0.5 kg.
