The park has a small staff of wardens and rangers and also a band of volunteers to help with maintenance and upkeep. The idea for Swift boxes came from Clarke Brunt, one of the volunteers who lives in Milton. Clarke has a successful colony of Swifts on his house which you can see online.
|2 sets of 3 boxes, each with a double roof|
The entrances are at the left (high) end of each box, as fitting cameras, eventually, will be made easier.
The result fits in with the architecture of the visitor centre.
A tweeter was attached to the side of the 2nd box from the left, driven by a Cheng Sheng player-amplifier.
Following future success with this project, there is scope for at least another 9 boxes on this gable end.
|The double roof is effective in the mid-day sun|
