      Dear Bobby,

      last year a pair occupied a box (EK2) within 21 minutes, but there were attempts before, when it was still occupied by a passer domesticus.

      With kind regards
      Ulrich

      Dear Ulrich. Let me get this right.
      Your saying also that you can put up a new box and by the
      time your down the bottom of the ladders you don't have
      a single swift in residence but a pair. Amazing. Anybody
      else on the forum experiencing this. 
      Regards.

      Dear Bobby,

      I still think that the NI Swifts, as described by Brain and
      Mark, are special in their behaviour (for me the reason is
      the location at the fringe of the range), but the occupation
      pairwise as described here by Brian definitely is no
      speciality of the location. I experienced both ways here in
      Berlin, as you described, as well as Brian did (a 3rd one is
      by fight).



      With kind regards

      Ulrich

      Dear Brian.



      Thank you for you're reply to my post. It must be

      wonderful to have 34 pairs at crumlin. Must be an
      amazing

      sight to see so many swifts around. I enjoy my 5 pairs so
      34

      wow. I totally agree with you that swifts attract
      swifts.

      Like you I also am not playing calls this year and the
      last

      3 weeks of last season I stopped. I'm still getting

      prospecting birds but the lousy weather we've been

      having is keeping them away most days. But getting to
      your

      point regarding the large masses of water you have close
      by.

      Do you really think that is changing the behaviour of
      the

      swifts around your house. I can look down the road from
      my

      house and see 150+ feeding in the evenings. the food
      source

      must be increased tenfold. But I struggle to see why
      that

      would make any difference to there natural behaviour. LP
      on

      the forum has many pairs but i never here of him saying

      pairs find boxes together or anybody else. If it's
      as

      you say you can put a box up and before your down the
      ladder

      it's occupied with a pair then surly this must merit
      a

      proper scientific study of some sorts. That way we could
      all

      possibly benefit and maybe increase our colony's.
      all

      for the good of our swifts. Are you looking into that at

      all.
