Swifts August 2019

It’s late summer 2019 and by the time you read this the skies over Bradford on Avon will be quiet and the Swifts well on their way to their winter home in Africa.

However, the Swift group remains active and would very much like to collate a list of all the places where Swifts nested this year in Bradford on Avon and the surrounding villages. This is so that if we spot any alterations to buildings where they are nesting we can chat to the owners and hopefully arrange that their nesting places are not blocked (swifts return to the same site each year and may not nest at all if they cannot enter), or, if this is not possible, a box is put up as a replacement. So if you spotted anywhere you think Swifts nested this year, please email climatechampions@gmail.com and let us know.
