Foun­da­tions laid to help de­clin­ing Swift pop­u­la­tion

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

A new ‘Swift brick’ de­signed by Man­thorpe build­ing prod­ucts in as­so­ci­a­tion with Bar­ratt Homes and the RSPB aims to pro­vide an ideal home for Bri­tain’s de­clin­ing Swift pop­u­la­tion. Swift num­bers have de­clined se­verely over re­cent years, in part due to lack of nest­ing sites. The first bricks are be­ing used at a Bar­ratt Homes’ de­vel­op­ment, near Ayles­bury, where 180 of 500 houses will be fit­ted with the bricks.
