Eco Swallow Nest Cup
Swallows will readily adopt these nest cups which are based on the size and shape of natural swallow nests. Ideal for placing in garages, sheds, stables, barns or even beneath archways, they provide somewhere secure for swallows to nest. Consequently, swallows use less energy to produce a nest and do not need to find suitable nest building mud. The nest cup consists of a moulded resin and concrete bowl with drainage hole, fixed to a 100% recycled plastic backing plate. Easy to fix to your wall, it slots over two screws with a third hole at the base for securing it in place. Removal for cleaning after the breeding season is also easy, simply undo the screw at the base and list off. Swallows are sociable birds but it is suggested that nest cups are placed no closer than 1m apart. To ensure they have sufficient room in the nest cup, and for arriving/departing leave a gap of at least 6cm above the cup.
