Wall Banging Phenomena At Sungai Rambai BH !!!

What can be the possible reasons why those swiftlet bang the walls of your BH?

Something that is not very usual and not a healthy thing to happen in your BH.

Just imagine when you enter your BH your can hear those wall slamming sound of swiftlet onto your walls or partition.

What can be the reasons, I asked myself recently after entering a BH at Sungai Rambai.

There must be some good reasons for this because in other BHs the occurrence is rare.

My predictions are as follows:

1) The birds that keep banging the walls might be those young one who were scared to see human walking into their territory.  They must have never flew out of their nest before thus are not familiar with the BH partition layout.

2) The partitions inside the BH were not properly designed and perhaps too many.

3) The birds could not find their way out since you switched on the light.  When those light were switch on swiftlet will be disorientated and will have a very tough time to find their way to the LAL.  If you want to hear lesser wall banging try to switch off the light.

4) The rooms created were too small and difficult for those birds to fly around.  Their way in is more like a one way street.  When they want to fly out they might need to fly backward since there is not enough room to make a turn.

Among the three above I found out that this BH at Sungai Rambai inclined more to the number two reason.

If you are a first timer entering a BH I think you will find that you are at a loss how to get out of the gridlock of the too many partitions laid by the previous contractor.

Some of the rooms created were as little as your bathroom at home.  This will make those birds difficult to turn thus banging the wall is more common.

Have a look at this sketch of how it looks like from the top view:

I have decided to remove many of the partitions and reduce the number of rooms like the sketch below:

The same thing shall be carried out on the other two floors above.

Let us give those birds more room to make their turns and reduce their wall banging from now on.

Remember if they flew at a high speed and bang those walls they will be injured or maybe experience some kind of concussion.

Birds cannot have any injury or worse concussion.

Once they are injured they will have little chance of survival.

So when you wanted to organize your BH floors try to think about these so called wall banging phenomena.

Try to have not too many partitions.

Each room must have enough size for the birds to turn, about 4 meters by 4 meters at least.

If you have never entered a BH before and would like to see the inside please call me at 0177551318.

One beautiful experience of a lifetime.

Come and see the whole three floors and explore the top most roof area with lots of water.
