Twelve nest boxes have recently been installed in All Saints Church with an attraction call sound system and six nest boxes have been installed at Exeter Road Primary School. A further ten boxes have been put up on private houses in Exmouth and two in Lympstone. We hope this will increase the breeding success of Exmouth's swifts and boost their numbers.

It's useful to know which parts of Exmouth are special for these birds.
