Peter McCarron's swift nest boxes
Peter McCarron’s swift nest boxes

In April 2017, Peter McCarron placed swift nest boxes on the chimney of his house and is playing the calls from a speaker located near to the boxes.

Peter’s house is located just across from the Nanny River Estuary on the border of Counties Louth and Meath. In the summer time there are lots of midges and mosquitoes just above the water so perhaps they will also tempt the Swifts. He often sees Swifts flying over his house so fingers crossed they will find the nest boxes.
