Swifts nest in crevices in the walls of buildings or under eaves or tiles. Churches are favourite sites. Their numbers are declining as a result of loss of nest sites, which occurs when buildings are demolished or renovated, or roofs are repaired and insulated.

Through simple actions such as timing works away from the breeding season or by installing inobtrusive nest boxes under eaves or behind tower louvres, swifts can be accommodated and can thrive.
