Schwegler Kingfisher and Sand Martin Nest Tunnel

Kingfishers and Sand Martens have lost many of their natural nesting sites where streams and rivers have been diverted, restructured or otherwise "improved". Our Nest Tunnel provides a vital nesting opportunity in such places, and also on natural waterways where no suitable sites are available or where apparently suitable banks are too stony or have too many roots. This tunnel was tested for decades and has been used successfully in many projects for rebuilding waterways all over Europe.

Material: Air-permeable and long-lasting lightweight concrete, designed for underground installation.

Design: The floor of both the Nest Box and Tunnel have a fine mesh grid to keep out Rodents. The nesting chamber is protected with a removable lid for cleaning.

Kingfisher nesting habits: This "flying" jewel tends to use two different tunnels or tubes for its first and second brood. It is therefore advisable to put two Nest Tunnels in the same steep slope, keeping them at least 70 cm apart. Sand Martin nesting habits: Colonies of never less than 12 breeding pairs of Sand Martins congregate on natural moving water or on naturally formed cliffs, as well as in gravel and clay pits. The Nest Tunnel is supplied with detailed installation and maintenance instructions.

External dimensions of tunnel: length 58 x height 15 x width 12.5 cm.

Outer nesting chamber: 26 x 26 x height 17 cm.

Inner nesting chamber: 22 x 22 x height 14 cm.

Weight: approx. 10 kg.
