Description: There are an estimated seventy four pairs of Swifts on the Isle of Man and their numbers have declined in recent years due to the loss of nest sites in buildings, which is where they almost exclusively raise their young. You can buy nest boxes to attach to the eaves of buildings and Manx National Heritage have successfully encouraged a new colony to start at the back of the iMuseum doing just this.
