Accommodating swallows, swifts and house martins

S, & are amongst the most endearing of British breeding birds. All three species have declined in numbers over the last 20 years due to various factors including the reduction of suitable nesting sites due to loss of old farm buildings and new buildings lacking appropriate nesting sites.
 
In association with a variety of bodies concerned about the plight of swifts, swallows and house martins, Cornwall Council have put together this leaflet to encourage those who are planning to undertake building works, including barn conversions, renovations, new development and property maintenance, to safeguard existing nesting sites and provide new opportunities for these birds to nest in or on the buildings.
