Swift Awareness Week begins tomorrow


This Saturday [2 July 2022] sees the start of a week of over 50 events across the country during the fifth Swift Awareness Week.

The fifth annual Swift Awareness Week commences tomorrow (Matthew Barfield).

Now Red-listed and declining, Common Swift is becoming anything but common. Swift Awareness Week aims to promote this species and make the public aware of their plight. The list of local promotional events can be found on the Action for Swifts website here.

You can also help your local swifts by installing a nest box. More information on this, and to see the wide range of commercially available swift nest boxes, go to the shopping page on Swift Conservation's website here.
